(a) What is the distance modulus of the Sun? (b) What is the Sun’s absolute magnitude?

(a) What is the distance modulus of the Sun? (b) What is the Sun’s absolute magnitude?

**2.**

**I found the distance modulous using 5log(4.84E-6/10) to be -31.6. I feel like I need the apparent magnitude to get the absolute, my teacher is very vague about what we are given to use. Is there a way to do part b without the apparent magnitude using luminosity or flux or something of the sort? Thanks****3. I feel like I should use this m-M=distance modulus but I wasn't given any thing to work with.**
