Title: E'Q' What is the relative order of the planets from the sun and what are their sizes


1
E.Q. What is the relative order of the planets
from the sun and what are their sizes?
2
The SUN!!
  • Our SUN is the center of our solar system, in
    which all planets orbit.
  • The Sun is the largest object in our solar system
    larger than the rest of the objects in the
    solar system put together.

3
The Inner Planets small and rocky
  • Mercury
  • Venus
  • Earth
  • Mars

4
MERCURY
  • Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun.
  • It is an inner planet, made of rock.
  • One of two planets (Venus being the other) that
    doesnt have a natural satellite, or moon.
  • It is currently the smallest planet in our solar
    system, about the size of Earths moon.

5
VENUS
  • Venus is the second planet from the Sun, and is
    about the same size as Earth. No natural
    satellites, or moons.
  • Venus is dry and has a thick atmosphere that
    traps heat. Its temperature is about 887
    degrees.
  • Venus spins on its axis in a direction opposite
    from that of Earths rotation.

6
EARTH
  • Earth is the third planet from the Sun, and is
    the largest inner planet.
  • Earth is the only planet that has liquid water,
    and the only known planet that can support human
    life.
  • Earth takes almost 24 hours to complete one
    rotation on its axis, and about 365 days to orbit
    the sun.

7
MARS
  • The fourth planet from the sun is sometimes
    called the Red Planet, due to its dark reddish
    brown soil.
  • Mars has two moons Phobos and Deimos, and the
    largest volcano in our solar system.

8
The Outer Planets big and gaseous
  • Jupiter
  • Saturn
  • Uranus
  • Neptune
  • Pluto?

9
JUPITER
  • The largest planet in our solar system.
  • Surrounded by a thin ring.
  • At least 16 moons orbit this giant.
  • Very active atmosphere its energy causes a
    circular storm, (very much like a hurricane)
    known as the Great Red Spot.

10
SATURN
  • Saturn is best known for its very wide, bright
    rings. These rings are visible from Earth
    through a small telescope.
  • Saturn has at least 18 named moons.

11
URANUS
  • The most distant planet you can see without using
    a telescope
  • A blue-green ball of gas and liquid, with at
    least 21 moons and very faint rings.

12
NEPTUNE
  • The farthest away of the gas giants, has at least
    eight moons and a faint ring.
  • Has circular storms, but none that have lasted as
    long as Jupiters Great Red Spot.

13
PLUTO?
  • No longer considered a planet.
  • Plutos surface is rocky, unlike the other outer
    planets, and is probably covered by frozen gases.

14
Radius in kilometers
  • Sun 695,000
  • Mercury 2,440
  • Venus 6,052
  • Earth 6,378
  • Mars 3,397
  • Jupiter 71,492
  • Saturn 60,268
  • Uranus 25,559
  • Neptune 24,766

15
Planets in descending order by radius(km)(planet
s in size from smallest to largest)
  • Mercury 2,440
  • Mars 3,397
  • Venus 6,052
  • Earth 6,378
  • Neptune 24,766
  • Uranus 25,559
  • Saturn 60,268
  • Jupiter 71,492
