  • The Planet, And Jovian Planets In The Solar System

    1597 Words  | 7 Pages

    The term planet is originated from the ancient Greek word planetes which translates to wanderer. This is a fitting characterisation as the planets in our Solar System and others “wander” or orbit around central point - a star. A planet is a celestial body which moves in an elliptical orbit around a star. Our Solar System which is located in the outer arms of the spiral galaxy, the Milky Way, has a unique and diverse composition. The Solar System consists of our star, the Sun, eight planets, and the

    gravitational pull, thus attracting more matter growing larger. The third process, gravitational collapse occurred when gas from the nebula accumulated quickly. The frost line also contributed to the differences between Terrestrial and Jovian planets. The frost line is the line where the distance

    atmospheres of Jovian planets and the atmospheres of terrestrial planets similar because they are all part of the same primordial solar nebula. Another similarity is that, they both move around the Sun at an angle orbit with changing eccentricities. Despite the fact, the Jovian and terrestrial planets differ in structure, they both have a solid core which in turn makes the cores of the terrestrial planets are larger than the cores of the Jovian planets. The textbook defines Jovian planets as the Jupiter-like

  • What Are The Four Jovian Planets

    266 Words  | 2 Pages

    The atmospheric make-up of the four Jovian planets such as Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn differ in that the atmospheres are generally storm filled and colder with the longer distance from the Sun. Where as the Terrestrial planets of Earth, Mars, Venus, & Mercury closeness to the sun allow for a more thin warm, hot to Frozen surface atmospheres. Clouds of the Jovian planets always occur at about the same temperatures. Like the ammonia clouds that are found, both Jupiter and Saturn form at 150

    So, there are two groups of planets; the inner planets and the outer planets. They have a lot of differents like atmosphere, weight, size and more. although the inner and outer planets have a lot in common like what they revolve, the solar system they are in and more. With eight planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune) there is a lot of information. With these many planets there are a lot of similarities, that all the planets have. One thing all they plant have is

  • Solar System: The Snow Line

    as the ice line, is a point in our solar system somewhere between Mars and Jupiter which separates the regions for formation of the high-density Terrestrial planets from the low-density Jovian planets. This line refers to the kind of matter that can condense in a particular region depending on the temperature of gas there. The closer a planet is to the sun, the hotter the temperature, meaning that compounds with high-melting points such as metal oxides and pure metals, which are very dense, are the

  • Physics Of The Solar System

    966 Words  | 4 Pages

    Final Examination In our solar system we see many characteristics be brought out by the sun and the planets. Five of the main properties that will be discussed are geology, chemical composition of the interior and atmosphere, interior structure, orbital time.speed, and distance from the Sun, and comparative planetology. Planetary geology is the study of the structure, composition, processes, and origin of major and minor planetary bodies in our solar system. The goal is to understand the origin

    System's four giant (or jovian) planets? (150 words, 3 marks) The four jovian planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus. Similarities of Jovian planets include that: 1) Jupiter and Saturn are mainly composed of hydrogen and helium 2) Neptune and Uranus are mainly composed of water, ammonia and methane 3) These planets all have less density compared to the terrestrial planets 4) These planets all have strong magnetic field due to their high speed of rotation 5) These planets all have low temperatures

    even closer to other matter – whether that be planets, stars, comets, asteroids, etc. The textbook also notes radial velocity and how the gravitational pull of a planet results in the star wobbling. “If the wobble happens to occur along our line of sight to the star, then we see small fluctuations in the star’s radial velocity, which can be measured using the Doppler effect” (Chaisson & McMillan, 2014, p 371) allowing us to estimate the mass of the planet (Chaisson & McMillan, 2014, p 371). I found

  • The Solar System Of The Sun At The Center And The Planets Revolving Around It

    1362 Words  | 6 Pages

    The solar system consists of the Sun at the center and the planets revolving around it. In the past, it was difficult to determine anything about the objects but their path around the Sun. Now, with telescopes, probes, and other devices, scientists can uncover much more information about objects in the solar system. One of the most important things that scientists uncover about objects are the properties of them. Some of these properties that scientists deduce are geologic activity, magnetic field
