The difference between inner planets and outer planets in the solar system – archyde

Jakarta, Borneo24.com Planets are part of our solar system. In addition to planets, there are suns, satellites, asteroids, comets, meteors and various other celestial bodies. According to the Indonesian Biological Consortium, planets revolve around the sun with a specific trajectory and speed. In the solar system, the eight known planets have elliptical orbits.

Our solar system is divided into inner planets and outer planets. This classification is based on the asteroid belt. The inner planets are the planets that lie between the sun and the asteroid belt. While the outer planets are planets that are outside of the asteroid belt.

Names of planets in the group of inner and outer planets

1. Inner planet
The inner planets are the planets closest to the Sun. The inner planets consist of Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. The inner planets are the planets closest to the sun

The inner planets and outer planets are separated by an asteroid belt in which thousands of asteroids orbit the sun between Mars and Jupiter.

2. The inner planets are made of rock and metal.

3. The inner planets have no rings.

4. The inner planets are much smaller in size and mass than the outer planets.

5. The distance from the sun is less than 250 million kilometers.

6. The rotation of the planets is slower than that of the outer planets.

2. Outer planets
The outer planets are groups of planets farther from the sun. This group of planets consists of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. This list of planets is also known as the Jupiter planetary group. The reason for mentioning is that it is similar in size to Jupiter and much larger than the inner or terrestrial groups of planets. The outer planets are also known as gas giants (Gasriese).

Features of the outer planets:

1. Have a lot of satellites, even more than 10.

2. The outer planets are made up of hydrogen and helium.

3. The outer planets have rings.

4. The outer planets are much larger and heavier than the inner planets.

5. The outer planet is more than 750 million kilometers from the sun.

6. The period of rotation is faster than that of the inner planets.

The inner planets and outer planets are separated by an asteroid belt in which thousands of asteroids orbit the sun between Mars and Jupiter. (***)
