The extraordinarily slow rotation of Venus (once every 243 Earth days) could have the effect of increasing the difference between temperatures on the "day" side as opposed to the "night" side, as occurs on Mercury. A day or night on Venus is 58 Earth days long. But this temperature variation does not occur due to its dense atmosphere.

Venus has an incredibly thick atmosphere that doesn't let most heat escape. It has a lot of carbon dioxide in its atmosphere (a greenhouse gas) which traps heat energy re-radiated by the planet. The atmosphere also effectively tranports this heat around, so it is also practically as hot at "nighttime" or at the poles.

The high surface temperatures of this planet have been attributed to the greenhouse effect?

Venus has a high surface temperature. The surface temperature has been attributed to the greenhouse effect. Venus surface has large impact craters and large, domal features.


Is the surface temperature of Venus K hotter than mercury?

Yes, The surface temperature of Mercury ranges between 100 K and 700 K. while that on Venus (caused by the greenhouse effect of it atmosphere) is at least 735 K.


What planet's high surface temperature is caused by the greenhouse effect?

The greenhouse effect occurs on many planets. If the actual temperature on Venus is -40 degrees, the temperature with the greenhouse effect is 800 degrees. What is the difference between the actual temperature and the temperature with the greenhouse effect?


What does the sun do to Venus's?

The Sun heats the atmosphere of Venus up tremendously due to an out-of-control greenhouse effect. The average temperature on Venus is 460 C, or 860 F. The surface temperature of Venus is actually higher than that of Mercury.


What is the difference between the greenhouse effect on Venus and the greenhouse effect on Earth?

On earth the greenhouse effect warms earth enough to allow organisms to live on the planet.But the greenhouse effect on Venus makes the average surface temperature 464 Celsius.


Does the greenhouse effect only occur on earth?

No. A gross example is Venus, which has a runaway greenhouse effect. The surface temperature is hot enough to melt lead.


How does the inner planets distance from the sun relate to the average surface temperature of the planet?

You might expect a planet to be hotter if it's nearer the Sun. This is true apart from Venus, which is the exception. Venus has a higher average surface temperature than Mercury. We believe this is because of the "greenhouse effect" of the atmosphere of Venus.


Can Venus be lived on?

No. The surface temperature of Venus is about 850 degrees Fahrenheit.


Which planet has the hottest greenhouse effect?

Venus has the hottest greenhouse effect, a runaway effect, with an average surface temperature of 735 K (462 °C; 863 °F), Venus' atmosphere is 96.5% carbon dioxide.

How hot is the surface of the planet Venus'?

The surface of Venus has a nearly uniform and constant temperature of over 460° Celsius (860°F). This is accepted to be the result of a runaway "greenhouse effect" in its thick carbon dioxide atmosphere.


Temperatures on venus are very high due to a strong what?

Greenhouse effect. Venus has a very high surface temperature due to its greenhouse effect. Its atmosphere contains 96.5% carbon dioxide (CO2), and its temperature is 460° Celsius, 850° Fahrenheit or 735° Kelvin.

The second planet from the sun which has moonlike phases and a surface heat of over 450 degrees C caused by the greenhouse effect is Venus?

This is true. Venus has a very high surface temperature due to its greenhouse effect. Its atmosphere contains 96.5% carbon dioxide (CO2), and its temperature is 460° Celsius, 850° Fahrenheit or 735° Kelvin.


What planet has the highest average surface temperature?

Venus has the highest average surface temperature, which is equal to 464C.


How does the greenhouse effect on Venus affect its temperature?

Venus has a runaway greenhouse effect. This made the temperature rise and rise. More and more water from the oceans evaporated into the atmosphere. The warm atmosphere was able to hold more water vapor. This feedback effect caused the oceans to eventually boil dry. Today the atmosphere of Venus is 96% carbon dioxide and temperature on the surface is 894°F (480°C).


What planet is characterized by extreme pressure and temperatures caused by a greenhouse effect?

Venus has extreme pressure and high temperatures.It has the hottest greenhouse effect, a runaway effect, with an average surface temperature of 735 K (462 °C; 863 °F), Venus' atmosphere is 96.5% carbon dioxide. Pressure at the surface of Venus is 96 times higher than Earth's.
