Thanks Mike.
And a pretty cool website you found, especially for a beginner like me. But, being a beginner, I didn't phrase my question well. I didn't mean to ask whether or how much uranium etc is in the sun, but rather why isn't it all there.
If I go to the river, grab a handful of mud and stuff it in a gallon of water, shake it up and set it down for a week, when I come back I'll find gravel at the bottom, sand above that, several layers of different size dirt particles, and clay at the top.
So, in the solar gravitational field, why isn't all of the gravel (uranium) and sand (iron)(and etc) at the "bottom" (the sun's core)?
Hope that's clearer. Thanks again.
