2 What is the relationship between the planets and the sun? By Harry Cummins

3 The beginning Billions of years ago a big bang took place a bang that gave birth to our Solar System… Today you will walk out of this room with a new thought on your minds a thought about the planets and how they relate to our nearest star The Sun.

4 The Solar System Today astronomers are trying to find other galaxies far away by using high Tech. Equipment such as small probes and rockets. Our Solar System is made up of billions of stars and it is theorized that for each grain of sand on Earth there is a star. Of course there are the planets all 8 of them. Join me on my journey of the planets and the Sun

5 Quick find of the planets MercuryVenus Earth Mars JupiterSaturn UranusNeptune The Sun Comparing Conclusion Credits

6 Mercury – Roman messenger god Planet:Mercury Diameter:4.878km No. of moons:0 No. of rings:0 Spin period:58.65 d. Average distance from sun:57.9 million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:3.2 minutes Average orbit speed:47.89 km/second How long to orbit sun:87.97 days Average temperature:170°C – night / 430°C - day

7 Venus – Roman goddess of beauty and love Planet:Venus Diameter:12,756 km No. of moons:0 No. of rings:0 Spin period: days Average distance from sun:108.2 million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:6 minutes Average orbit speed:35.03 km/sec How long to orbit sun:224.7 days Average temperature:464°C

8 Earth Planet:Earth Diameter:12,756 km No. of moons:1 No. of rings:0 Spin period:23.93 hours Average distance from sun:149.6 million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:8.3 minutes Average orbit speed:29.79 km/sec How long to orbit sun: days Average temperature:15°C

9 Mars – Roman god of war Planet:Mars Diameter:6,786 km No. of moons:2 No. of rings:0 Spin period:24.62 hours Average distance from sun:227.9 million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:12.6 minutes Average orbit speed:24.13 km/sec How long to orbit sun:1.88 years Average temperature:-40°C

10 Jupiter – King of the Roman gods Planet:Jupiter Diameter:142,984 km No. of moons:16 No. of rings:1 Spin period:9,92 hours Average distance from sun:778.3 million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:43 minutes Average orbit speed:13.06 km/sec How long to orbit sun:11.86 years Average temperature:120°C

11 Saturn – Roman king of the harvest Planet:Saturn Diameter:120,536 km No. of moons:18 No. of rings:7 Spin period:10.67 hours Average distance from sun:1427 million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:1:20 Average orbit speed:9.64 km/sec How long to orbit sun:29.46 years Average temperature: -180°C

12 Uranus – Roman god of the sky and heavens Planet:Uranus Diameter:51,118 No. of moons:15 No. of rings:11 Spin period:17.23 hours Average distance from sun: million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:2 h. 40 m. Average orbit speed:6.81 km/sec How long to orbit sun:84.01 years Average temperature:-210°C

13 Neptune – Roman god of the sea Planet:Neptune Diameter:49,528 No. of moons:8 No. of rings:4 Spin period:16.12 hours Average distance from sun: million km Time for sunlight to reach planet:4 h. 10 m. Average orbit speed:5.43 km/sec How long to orbit sun: years Average temperature:-220°C

14 Now that you have seen all the planets lets compare them to the sun the light bulb of our galaxy…

15 THE SUN Star typeYellow main sequence Diameter1,392,000 km Average surface temp.5,500°C Average core temp.15,000,000°C Average distance from earth149.6 million km Polar rotation35 earth days Equatorial rotation25 earth days

16 Comparing Size: Sun Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Earth Venus Mars Mercury Temperature

17 Conclusion For a conclusion I have to say that the sun is bigger and hotter than all the planets, just to paint a picture in your head about how big the sun is… The Sun's mass is about 333,000 times Earth's mass. An object at the Sun's surface would weigh 28 times as much as it does on Earth's surface because it is way bigger so it must have more gravity
