Transcript of Earth Science

Sun, Earth, Moon Star Sun Earth Sphere Moon Sphere 5.8D
Identify and compare the physical characteristics of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. Earth Science Sphere Diameter - 1,390,000 km Mass is 333,000 times the mass of Earth Gas: hydrogen and helium Rotates at the equator once every 25 days and
near the poles once every 36 days 225 million years to revolve around
the center of the Milky Way galaxy Temperatures range from about 5,000 degrees
Celsius to 15,600,000 degrees Celsius. Core, convection zone, radiation zone,
photosphere, chromosphere, corona Faint thin atmosphere that
evaporates into space quickly Center of our solar system Sunspots, prominences, and solar flares Gravity is 28 times the gravity of Earth Diameter at the equator
is 12,756 km Mass is 6.6 billion trillion tons! Solid, Liquid, Gas - Iron, oxygen, silicon, magnesium, nickel, sulfur, titanium, water, hydrogen Rotates on its axis in a counter-
clockwise motion once in 24 hours Revolves once around the Sun
about every 365 days. Temperature ranges from between -88 degrees
Celsius to 58 degrees Celsius. Earth's gravity is six times
more than the moon's gravity. Inner and outer core, mantle, crust Atmosphere is made of nitrogen, oxygen, and traces
of argon, carbon dioxide, and water. Earth is the 3rd planet from the Sun Plains, mountains, craters, soil,
rocks, bodies of water, and ice Diameter is 3,479 km Mass is 1/81 of Earth's mass Solid - oxygen, silicon, iron, magnesium,
calcium, aluminum, manganese, titanium Rotates every 27.3 days Revolves once around Earth every 27.3 days.
(completes one rotation around axis in the same
time as it completes one revolution around Earth) Temperatures range from between -153 degrees
Celsius to 107 degrees Celsius. The gravity is 1/6 of the Earth's gravity. Core, inactive mantle, crust No atmosphere Distance from Earth averages
384,403 km Plains, mountains, craters, dust, rocks
