Pressure distribution in the sun

  1. Hi,

    I am currently studying the internal structure of the sun and I was wondering if there exists scientific information regarding the pressure distribution along a hypothetical line from the core to the, let´s say, convection zone. You can find frequently in the internet that the pressure in the core is about 25 PPa. Are there comparable values for the radiative zone and the convection zone?
