Q
Stars and the Solar System

Question:

Boojho made the following sketch (Fig. 17.29) of the solar system. Is the sketch correct? If not, correct it.

Answer:

No, the sketch made by Boojho is incorrect, because in the solar system the sequence of the planets is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. In the diagram, the positions of the planets Venus, Mars, Neptune and Uranus are changed. Also, in the diagram, he had shown the Asteroids belt in the gap between the orbits of Saturn and Jupiter which is wrong, the Asteroids belt is located in the middle of the orbits of Jupiter and Mars.

The correct diagram of the solar system is given below:
