Hello,
I'm new to this and have a very limited understanding of Physics i.e. High school level.
My question is (please don't laugh ); In the centre of the sun there must be a part at which all forces are pushing/pulling in the same direction. Since I would imagine this to be an absolutely colossal force surely the very centre particles/atoms could not move in any direction, which would mean absolute zero, no?
Can someone explain in laymans terms why this isn't so?
Thanks,
Thickman
