  2. 2.  The circumference at the equator is 154704.6 km Neptune is the 8th and furthest planet (not including Pluto) outward in the solar system The gravitational factor is 11.172 m/s2 ~ If you weigh 100 lbs on Earth, you would weigh about 113 lbs on Neptune w=m x g 100/9.8= 10.2 w=10.2 x 11.172 w= 113.95
  3. 3. Revolution and Rotation Period The revolution period on Neptune is 165 Earth years! The rotation period is 17.24 hours
  4. 4. Distance The average distance to Earth is 4.3 billion km (2.68 billion miles) Average distance to the sun is 4.51 billion km Neptune is about four light hours from Earth – about .00046 light years http://www.google.com/imgres? q=neptune&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1360&bih=587&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns &tbnid=HutQKJddICn4tM:&imgrefurl=http://www.universetoday.com/2
  5. 5. What is Neptune made of? Neptune mostly consists of ammonia, water, and methane The core is iron and nickel The atmosphere consists of methane gas, ethane gas, and acetylene 80% hydrogen and 19% helium Has 5 rings Has 8 moons It is believed that the rings are young and they formed when one of Neptunes moons was destroyed http://www.google.com/imgres? q=neptunes+rings&hl=en&biw=1360&bih=587&tbm=isch&tbnid=Eh_V

  9. 9. Facts about Neptune Triton (Neptune’s largest moon) is older than itself Neptune hasn’t completed an orbit around the sun since it was discovered in 1846 Neptune’s day is 16 hours Neptune’s seasons last 40 Earth years Neptune has a dark spot like Jupiter, causing a storm larger than earth. wingmakers.co.nz
