A study on the solar system(ace)97 03

  1. 1. An ACE Project by Benedict Lee(12) 1A1
  2. 2. <ul><li>The Solar System consists of… </li></ul><ul><li>The Sun </li></ul><ul><li>Celestial objects bound to it by gravity, such as planets </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s take a look at the 8 planets in our solar system… </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>Closest planet to the Sun </li></ul><ul><li>Smallest planet in the Solar System </li></ul><ul><li>Has no natural satellites(Moons) </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature = -184 °C - 465°C </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 4878km </li></ul><ul><li>Day(mercury:earth)= 58.6:1 </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>Second closest plant to the Sun </li></ul><ul><li>Has the highest average temperatures(460°C) because of : </li></ul><ul><li>Its proximity to the Sun </li></ul><ul><li>Its thick atmosphere which contains carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide which creates a strong greenhouse effect </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 12104km </li></ul><ul><li>Day(venus:earth) = 243:1 </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>Third planet from the Sun </li></ul><ul><li>The only planet known capable of supporting life </li></ul><ul><li>Average temperature on Earth = 7.2°C, but it varies much more than that at its extremes </li></ul><ul><li>The hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth was 70.7°C in Iran. </li></ul><ul><li>The lowest temperature was -89.2°C in Antarctica. </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 12756km </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>Cold </li></ul><ul><li>Does not have an atmosphere to retain heat </li></ul><ul><li>Relatively far from the Sun </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature = approximately -140°C - 20°C </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 6794km </li></ul><ul><li>Day(mars:earth) = 1:24.6hr </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>Asteroids are mostly small Solar System bodies composed mainly of refractory rocky and metallic minerals. </li></ul><ul><li>Asteroids range in size from hundreds of kilometres across to microscopic </li></ul><ul><li>All asteroids save the largest, Ceres, are classified as small Solar System bodies </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>The asteroid belt contains tens of thousands, possibly millions, of objects over one kilometre in diameter </li></ul><ul><li>Despite this, the total mass of the main belt is unlikely to be more than a thousandth of that of the Earth </li></ul><ul><li>The main belt is very sparsely populated </li></ul>
  9. 11. <ul><li>Gas Giant </li></ul><ul><li>Largest Planet </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature = 21 °C </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 142800km </li></ul><ul><li>Day(jupiter:earth) = 1:9.8hr </li></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><li>Second Largest Planet </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature = < -175°C </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 273700km </li></ul><ul><li>Day(saturn:earth) = 1:10.2hr </li></ul>
  11. 13. <ul><li>Axis tilts back 60 °! </li></ul><ul><li>Both poles of planet are illuminated constantly for 42 years! </li></ul><ul><li>Dark night lasting next 42 years! </li></ul><ul><li>11 rings around itself </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 51800km </li></ul><ul><li>Day(uranus:earth) = 1:17.2hr </li></ul>
  12. 14. <ul><li>Blanketed by thin clouds and a slender band of rings </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter = 49500km </li></ul><ul><li>Day(neptune:earth) = 1: 16.1hr </li></ul>
