I made this for science class. Instead of doing research on a planet like everybody else in the class, my group was stuck with a few dwarf planets and some info on pluto. We didn't even get a choice in the matter.

In this version of the powerpoint I only included the work I did which is almost all of it.

  1. 1. Ceres, Eris, Haumea, Makemake, and the Controversy on Pluto By wintercool612
  2. 2. Eris 2 • Named after Eris, the Greek Goddess of strife • 419 million km (2.8 AU) from the Sun • 14466114095.82 km from Earth • 2,397 km in diameter • Orbital period of 557 years or 2.135 m/s • Rotation time is 1.08 days • Temperature ranges from 30 to 55 degrees Kelvin
  3. 3. Eris (Continued) • 1.67±0.02 × 10 kg in mass • Half of Eris is covered in pure methane ice • When Eris is far away from the sun it is completely frozen. • As Eris comes closer to the sun it’s atmosphere is made of methane and nitrogen. • Acceleration due to gravity is 0.61m/s • Density is 2.25 g/cm • Eris only has one moon; Dysnomia 3 22
  4. 4. Ceres • Named after Ceres, Roman Goddess of Plants • 446,000,000 km (2.98 AU) from the Sun • 270,400,000 km from Earth • 950 km in diameter • Revolution time is 0.3781 days • Orbital period is 4.6 years • The temperature on Ceres is exactly 176 degrees Kelvin
  5. 5. Ceres (Continued) • Ceres has a mass of 9.43 ± 0.07 × 10 kg • It’s surface is similar to C-type asteroids • Acceleration due to gravity is 0.27m/s • It’s density 2.077 ± 0.036 g/cm • Ceres doesn’t have any moons 20 2 3
  6. 6. Haumea • Named after Haumea the matron goddess of the island Hawaii • 6482823726.394 km (43.335 AU) from the Sun • 5108318490.486 km from Earth • 250 km in diameter • Rotation period is 3 hours and 55 minutes • It’s temperature is 32 degrees Kelvin • 4.2 x 1021 is the mass • It’s density is 2.6 - 3.3 g/cm • Haumea has the moons: Hi’iaka and Namaka 21 3
  7. 7. Makemake • Named after the creator of humanity to the native people of Easter Island • 6850236096.812 km(45.791 AU) from the Sun • 5609920150.912 km from Earth • Revolution time is 309.88 years • 1,300 - 1,900 km in diameter • 4 x 10 km in mass • It’s density is 2,000 kg/m • Temperature is 30 degrees Kelvin • It’s composition is mainly ice and rock • Makemake doesn’t have any moons 21 3
  8. 8. Controversy on Pluto • Pluto was a planet for quite some time, until the requirements for planets were changed. Pluto isn’t considered a planet because it doesn’t meet the requirement: “It must have cleared the neighborhood around its orbit.” However it does meet the other requirements of being a planet. It is still loved as a planet to some people.
