There are lot's of asteroids and each one is a different distance from the sun. Between Mars and Jupiter is the Asteroid belt. Is that what you mean?

there are various but it is in the asteroid belt usually

i imagen that the asteroid belt is very cold seeing that it not that far fromt the sun

Mars is located 227.9x106km (or 1.52AU) from the sun, and the asteroid belt is located 300-600x106km (or 2-4AU) from the sun.

It would depend entirely on how far away the asteroid was from the sun. Furthermore, which sun are you referring to? There are many suns in the solar system.

No, the asteroid belt orbits the Sun somewhere beyond Mars, but not as far as Jupiter.

Mercury is not a part of the asteroid belt. The asteroid belt is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Mercury is far closer to the sun.

It is not that far away. The asteroid belt lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

The asteroid that passed nearest to the sun was the asteroid that fell to the gulf of Mexico and killed all of the dinosaurs.

how long does it take the asteroid belt to revolve around the sun?

Two parts of the asteroid belt, the inner belt is closer to the Sun and the outer belt is further from the Sun.

An asteroid could never travel from the Sun to the Earth.

It can get as cold as it can. The farther the planet with an asteroid belt is from the sun, the colder the asteroid belt gets :)

Yes! The asteroid belt orbits the sun. Olivia

Yes. Asteroids orbit the sun.

The planets nearer the sun than the asteroid belt are; Mars Earth Venus Mercury

The Sun has a much larger gravitational pull , an asteroid would be pulled faster toward the sun, if it were in the same proximity.

They are about 93 million miles from the Sun. That's how far the Earth is from the Sun and they are all here on the Earth. You see, a "meteorite" is defined as a "meteoroid" that's landed on Earth from space. You probably meant "meteoroid". These are closely associated with the asteroid belt, but their distances from the Sun vary a lot.

An asteroid is a rock that is far smaller than a planet or dwarf planet. They have no atmosphere. They may circle a sun or a planet.

A dwarf planet is a body that orbits the sun - is often beyond the orbit of Jupiter and is classified below a planet. An asteroid is a body that orbits the sun within the asteroid belt.

The asteroids got into the asteroid belt because of the gravitational pull of the Sun

Actually there are an place of Asteroids. Sun Mercury Venus Earth Mars ASTEROID Belt. So why I capitalized the word ASTEROID on ASTEROID Belt. Because this Belt is full of Asteroids

The asteroid has momentum. There is also gravity in space mainly because of the Sun in our part of space. That gravity deflects the asteroid's path. The result is that the asteroid moves in an orbit around the Sun.
