A nebula is just a cloud of dust and small particles. The solar system is larger bodies like Jupiter, Saturn, etc. Our solar system has had most of the dust coalesced into planets, satellites, comets, and such.

Both are the same except the solar nebula is the nebula that formed our solar system.

A solar nebula is related to the formation of our Solar System, any other nebula is just a nebula.

The diffreence between a solar nebula and a Nebula is its size and if it is Intersteller or not a solor nebula is usually larger and forms a Solar System where a regular nebula is smaller and is mostly the result of a collapsed star or a Supernova.

The solar system was produced by solar nebula. The nebula was disrupted by an unknow substance in the air.

There is no such thing as a nebula star.

An explosion disturbs the gas and dust in the nebula.

A nebula by far. One nebula's fingertips ( I think it's the eagle nebula? or horseshoe?) is 3 times as big as the solar system itself.

No. A nebula is generally much larger than a solar system. We believe that our sun and solar system came to be when a nebula collapsed under the influence of gravity, and the gas of the nebula became the Sun and our planets - and everything else.

No. Most nebula are far larger than the solar system. Many of them are light years across!

A solar system can be contained within a galaxy.

The cloud of gas and dust that eventually developed into our solar system is called the solar nebula.

The celestial bodies of our solar system are believed to have formed from the solar nebula. The solar nebula was a giant cloud of dust and gas that was left behind after the formation of the sun.

A star is a large ball of gas, comprised mostly of hydrogen and helium, undergoing fusion as its main source of energy. A solar nebula is the remnants of a star's formation, the gas and dust was not accreted with the star. The solar nebula is thought to form the planets that orbit around the sun.

A model for the solar system in which the sun and planets condensed from a cloud (or nebula) of gas and dust

Jupiter did not become a second star in this solar system.

But there is nothing following so there is no question . . .

Due to the gravitational pull towards the sun, fron when the solar system was born in a solar nebula.

No, it is about 7,000 light years away
