I fear that I am way out of my depth here, being a mere mathematics student but anyway....(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We have been asked by our mathematical modelling lecturer to calculate the quantity of water required to extinguish the sun. I'm pretty sure that the exact physics and processes of the sun are not required just the main properties, equations, etc..

It must be totally obvious that I have absolutely no knowledge of astrophysics at all and am just hoping that someone could possibly advise me on what I need to include for a reasonable answer.

Cheers Chris
