Earth is the third planet from the sun.It is the densests and the fifth largest from the eight planets in our solar system.
The Sun is a star at the centre of the solar system.The tempreture of the Sun is about 10,000 Fahrenheit (5,600 Celsius).The tempreture rises from the surface of the sun inwards to the very hot centre of the sun where it reaches about 27,000,000 Fahrenheit (15,000,000 Celsius).The tempreture of the sun also rises from the surface outwards into the atmosphere.The uppermost layer of the solar atmosphere, called the corona reaches tempretures of millions of degrees.
Pluto is no longer a planet now it is named the dwarf planet.The orbits of the planets obey Kepler's laws of planetary motion,and are elliptical in shape.
The orbital periods of planets range from 88 days (Mercury) to 164.8 years (for Neptune)Jupiter is the largest of the planets, and has a mass which is 318 times that of the Earth. Mercury is now the smallest planet, and is just 5.5% of the Earth’s mass of 5.97 × 1024 kg.
