### Why is the meters or centimeters a poor choice?

In general, they are not.
If you are thinking of the distance from the earth to the sun,
then there are more convenient units. Even so, using scientific
notation, that is a trivial problem.

###### Asked in Planet Mars, Scientific Notation

### What is the scientific notation of mars?

Mars does not have scientific notation. Various measures
concerning Mars: its distance from the sun or earth, its mass,
radius, length of orbit may be expressed in scientific notation but
any of those is a characteristic of Mars in scientific notation,
not Mars itself. Besides, you have not specified which
characteristic.

###### Asked in Planetary Science

### What happens to the distance between planets as they get farther from the sun?

The farther away from the sun, the farther apart the orbits of
the planets become (the planets farther away from the sun are more
spaced out).
The average distance between Mercury and Venus, the two closest
planets to the sun, is about 0.779 au.
The average distance from Mars to Jupiter, the two planets in
the middle, is about 5.32 as.
The average distance from Uranus to Neptune, the two planets
farthest from the sun, is about 33.2 au.
