Transcript

  • 1. By Gab and Claire
  • 2. Hyperlinks The Four R.I.P.’s Water Atmosphere Electromagnetic Fields Scale Picture Size Density Formation
  • 3. The Four R.I.P.The Four Rocky Inner Planets are: Mercury Venus Mars Earth The four planets closest to the sun The smallest of all the planets Have rocky surfaces. Home
  • 4. Water Out of the four R.I.P., only two of them have water and for one of them, water is ice caps. Earth has water, Mars has ice caps, and Venus and Mercury do not have water. Home
  • 5. Atmosphere Venus, Earth and Mars all have atmospheres.  Although, they have very different gas content, water vapor and pressure. Mercury has no atmosphere. Home
  • 6. Electromagnetic Fields Earth and Mercury both have electromagnetic fields.  Earth’s is much stronger than Mercury’s. Venus and Mars do not have electromagnetic fields.  Although Mars might have had on in the past. Home
  • 7. Picture Here is an up to scale picture of the four Rocky Inner Planets (and the moon). Home
  • 8. Size The R.I.P are smaller than the outer gas giants. For example, 57 Earths could fit into Neptune, the smallest gas giant. Home
  • 9. Density The R.I.P. are much denser than the outer gas giants. They are mostly made of solid (rocky) materials compared to the outer gas giants which are mostly made out of gas (hence the name). Home
  • 10. Formation All of the Rocky Inner Planets formed the same way because they were all close to the sun and relatively the same size. There’s lots of evidence that shows that the R.I.P. were very hot during the formation of the solar system. In fact, all of the planets were just big balls of molten…  1) R.I.P. were very hot from the heat of the sun.  2) Rocks and asteroids nearby would collide with the big ball of molten.  3) That would make all of the R.I.P. grow in size but the sun kept on melting all of the material that collided into the R.I.P.  4) Eventually, the sun shrank in size and light so there was a lot less heat, therefore, all of the R.I.P. cooled down and then there was that huge ball of rock, that was a planet.
