#### Explanation:

Let's learn about each of them...

First of all we can divide them into two

Interior layers of a star and The atmosphere (outer)

$\text{1] Interior layers of a star}$

$\text{ Core}$

• It is the innermost region of a star

• It is where the nuclear fusion occurs

• All of a energy of a star comes from this

• It is where a star converts Hydrogen atoms into helium

$\text{ Radiation zone}$

• The energy(heat) from the core travels through this layer

• The energy travels in the form of electromagnetic radiation

• In other words, the energy travels in the form of photons

$\text{ Convection zone}$

• When the energy comes to the Convective zone, it travels in a different manner

• The energy travels in the way of the water boiling in a pot

• In other words, the energy moves by convection

$\text{2] Atmosphere}$

$\text{ Photosphere}$

• It is a very thin layer

• It emits most of the light

$\text{ Chromosphere}$

• It can be seen during an eclipse

• It is the middle-most layer in the atmosphere of a star

• It appears as a pinkish-red layer

$\text{ Corona}$

• It is the outermost layer of a star

• It is nicknamed as the crown of a star

• It is also visible during an eclipse

Hopefully this helps..!
