What dwarf planets are in the asteroid belt?
Ceres is the only dwarf planet in the asteroid belt.
Mars does not lie within the asteroid belt. It orbits nearer the Sun than the asteroid belt, so is an inner planet. In order from the Sun, the solar bodies or groups are: The Inner Planets: Mercury Venus Earth Mars The Asteroid Belt and Dwarf Planet Ceres The Outer Planets: Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune The Cometary Belt Centaurs The Kuiper Belt Dwarf Planet Pluto Dwarf Planet Haumea Dwarf Planet Makemake The Scattered Disc Dwarf Planet…
Nothing officially separates them but most asteroids are between Mars and Jupiter. There is no planet separating the Outer planets. Outer planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune and this are gas giant. Asteroid belt consists of asteroid and Ceres, the Dwarf planet so an Dwarf planet and Asteroid belt separates the Planets.
The solar system can be divided in two parts, by the asteroid belt. The planets that are closer to the sun than the asteroid belt are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. These are the inner planets. The planets more distant from the sun than the asteroid belt are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Those are the outer planets. And even farther out are the dwarf planets and comets.
The asteroid belt is located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The main Asteroid Belt orbits at around 3 AU (450 million kilometers) from the Sun, between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. There is a second belt of asteroids, the Kuiper Belt, orbiting the sun between Neptune and Sedna. Both asteroid belts contain several planets: -- The main belt contains Ceres (dwarf planet), Vesta, and Pallas. -- The Kuiper Belt contains three more…
The largest body in the asteroid belt is Ceres, with a diameter of about 950 km. Although it has long been considered to be an asteroid, Ceres was classified as a "dwarf planet" on August 24, 2006. (The other dwarf planets are Pluto, Makemake, Haumea, and Eris.) The issue of whether Ceres remains an asteroid was not addressed at that time.
