the sun is really big and so pulls smaller objects around it and so the planets orbit the sun.
the solar system contains satellites that provide "solar power"
It depends on the situation. Usually, the word "solar" by itself means "of/pertaining to a star". Sol (with a capital S) refers to the star that Earth orbits, spec…ifically, so Solar refers to the Earth's sun, or its system (depending on the context of its use), specifically.
If you're asking WHY the solar system is called that, it is because the sun (solar) is the center object controlling the orbits of the individual planets. As to the meaning of… life, or why it exists, well, let's just say God plays billards alot!
the name solar system means a system of planets around the star. hope this helps! Solar systems are found throughout the universe but the one we know is in the milky way and t…he sun (star) revolves around planets.
AU is short for astronomical units. You use astronomical units to measure distance in the solar system. distances of the p…lanets from the sun mercury-0.4 AU venus-0.7 AU earth-1 AU mars-1.5 AU jupiter-5.2 AU saturn-9.5 AU uranus-19.2 AU neptune-30 AU
The "solar system" is the collective term for the sun and all of the objects gravitationally bound to it, including the planets and their moons, asteroids, comets, etc., and a…ll of the space between them.
Gravity is essentially what keeps the solar system together. Without the gravitational pull of the sun, the planets would have floated off into space billions of years ago. Gr…avity also keeps the moon orbiting earth. In a much smaller effect, gravity is the cause of changing tides.
Gravity is what holds the solar system together. Imagine swinging a weight on a string in circles above your head. If the string were cut, the weight wouldn't keep going in …circles around you, would it? Gravity is similar to the string; without it, the planets would just fly away. Gravity also holds individual planets together. Without it, the solar system would just be a bunch of gas and dust, with no planets at all.
Standing on earth, there are three bodies who's gravity affect us. . The sun's gravity keeps the earth in orbit, thus giving us a stable climate moderated by the s…easons. . The earth's gravity keeps all things (that cannot fly) fixed to the ground. . The moon's gravity (and the sun) gives us tides. . These gravitational forces and effects are similar throughout the solar system, but will vary from planet to planet based upon the number and sizes of moons each planet has.
The Earth makes a small ripple in the gravitational field surrounding the Sun. Man generates more energy in some radio and the TV wavelengths than the Sun otherwise the Earth …would be exceptionally difficult to discover from a few light years away.
even though the sun looks small, it is very big and sends solar flares. if a flare hits earth, it will be violently bombarded. scientists, like me, believe that might happen n…ext year (2012).
The word 'solar' comes from the fact that all all solar systems contain a sun & the word 'system' comes from its planetary system. All solar systems go with this definition. …
Yes, It holds the whole solar system together.
well earth is in the solar system and if we dont have the solar system then we dont have earth than nobody would be alive.nobody.
A revolution in the solar system is the movement of one object around another. For example, all the planets REVOLVE around the sun or the moon REVOLVES around earth. It takes …365.26 days for the earth to have one revolution around the sun, technically a year.
