What position in the solar system does mercury hold?
Sixth :) Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto (many don't consider Pluto to be a planet but I like it)
You hold the celestial record for the fastest revolution around this solar sytems largest star What am I?
Possibly Mercury. BTW: Our solar system only has one star.
No, the sun is a star, not a planet. The hottest planet in the Solar System is Venus, coming in ahead of Mercury due to its thick atmosphere of mostly CO2 being able to hold in heat extremely well.
mercury is so small that its feeble gravity can only hold on to wisps of gas and solar wind.
Bothe mercury and Venus have no known moons. All of the other planets in ku solar system have at least one moon, the larger gas giant planets have many moons. It's partly due to the lack of debris in the inner part of the solar system and the fact that Venus and mercury are not very big, so can't easily capture or hold a moon.
Its burning hot, the hottest planet in our solar system. Mercury is closer to the Sun, but has no atmosphere to hold in the heat. Venus gets up to 867 degrees Fahrenheit (HOT!).
Venus is the hottest planet because it has an atmosphere and has thick clouds that trap the heat in. Although Mercury is the closest to the Sun, it has no atmosphere so it cannot hold the heat in.
The sun is able to do this by exerting a gravitational force on the various bodies within our solar system.
Brahmins hold the highest position and the shudras hold the lowest position
As a solar system has one or more stars (which radiate light) that provide a gravimetric center to hold the system together, it could be said that a solar system means that there is something in the system that gives off light. The related question "What is a solar system?" is linked below, and has an excellent answer.
no, it's way too close to the sun to hold onto an atmosphere without the sun's gravity riping it apart, plus the solar winds are too strong for mercury to hold it's atmosphere.
No. Because Mercury has almost no atmosphere, there is nothing to hold in the heat at night. In the day, the temperature can reach 800 degrees Fahrenheit. At night the temperature drops down to about negative 290 degrees Fahrenheit. These are the greatest temperature difference of any planet in our solar system.
Yes. The sun needs gravity to hold itself together and to keep everything else in the solar system in orbit.
There is no gravity in space, everything is weightless.
big enough to hold our whole solar system!
One force is the gravitational connection between our sun and the planets that make up the solar system. Electromagnetism holds atoms together. Two types of nuclear forces hold the nuclei of the atom together.
If you mean, what keeps the sun in the center of the solar system, no force is needed to hold it there. The strong gravitational field of the sun holds everything else in the solar system in place, orbiting the sun. And wherever the sun goes, it takes the rest of the solar system with it. That's why the sun is always in the center of the solar system.
Mercury has no atmosphere, it is not massive enough to hold on to one, nor does it produce a magnetosphere to protect it from solar winds (which would blow away any atmosphere it could otherwise maintain).
Sir Isaac Newton
It is Mars' smallest moon
Mercury has almost no atmosphere and so there is nothing to hold the Solar heat in. As a result the temperature drops during Mercurial nights. The polar regions of Mercury get very little direct sunlight and so they are always below 180 K.
'There are eight major planets in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.' 'It was Thomas Jefferson who first penned these lines: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."'
All of the planets except for Mercury have substantial atmospheres. Mercury is the least massive of the planets and has the weakest gravity, which makes it hard to hold on to gasses. It is also the closest planet to the sun, and the intense heat will tend to drive away any gasses that would collect around the planet. The moons of the solar system all have weaker gravity than Mercury does, so most are unable… Read More
I am the object in the solar system that can float in water if you find a bathtub big enough to hold me?
Saturn. And then the water freezes...
Isaac Newton. Having formulated his theory of universal gravitation and the math that describes how it works, he was able to show that it leads to Kepler's laws, which describe the motions of everything in the solar system.
Scientists hold that the planets coalesced gravitationally out of the same proto-solar disk, a nebula of gas and dust, from which the Sun and the remainder of the solar system was formed.
If I tell you that I dont know the answer would you hold it against me? ;)
Answer My solar system extends from the Sun to the Oort Cloud which is about 1 light year away. "The solar system does not really end with Pluto. Besides the planets, there is a thin haze of dust (some of it bunched into comets). Any of this dust that is nearer to the Sun than to any other star may be in the gravitational hold of the Sun and so counts as part of the… Read More
By the Earth's gravity. This is why celestial bodies like the Moon and Mercury do not have atmospheres, they don't have enough gravity to hold onto the gases.
The earth is the only planet in the solar system that has the ability to hold the different forms of life.This planet also has unique properties like: Air is present in this planet. Plants and trees grow here etc.
The planet Mercury does hold a number of intriguing mysteries. It is an unusually dense planet, with a core size ratio larger than any other planet in the solar system, which hints that it might have originally had a different form and size but had its outer crust "blown off" from an immense collision. For incompletely understood reasons it might be slowly shrinking; it has craters which are shallower than they should be; it has… Read More
Neptune is the last planet in the solar system because pluto is too small to be a planet. And also that there was a rumour about pluto being a moon of some planet but then the gravity to hold the planetoid was too weak so thats how pluto became a planet but its too small so now neptune is known as the last planet on the solar system I hope this helps you :)
Gravity. Magnetism is a fairly short-range force, but gravity goes on forever.
Mass. There's a gravitational force of mutual attraction between every pair of mass objects. The mutual force of attraction between the sun and every orbiting object in the solar system is what keeps each one in its orbit.
Earth is a terrestrial planet that orbits the star Sol. It is the third planet orbiting said star, and the only one known to hold complex life. However, due to its relatively small mass, Earth does not play a significant part in its solar system.
Forces hold the Universe together. On a closer to home base, the forces also hold our solar system together, allowing us to ask questions on Answers.com. (Gravity exerts a weak force the works from long distances, EM exerts a strong force that works from long distances, and Nuclear forces would take too long to explain.)
typically the 1992 Mercury Sable can hold up to 16 gallons
No, Mercury is too hot to hold water.
The Moon has a diameter about one fourth that of the Earth. It is the largest moon with respect to its "mother planet" that exists in the Solar System.
very large and powerful rubber bands hold them ie planets in place

What's holding the planted in orbit is the sun because the aun has a really strong gavatanional pull that can hold all the planets in our solar system
Mercury has almost no atmosphere because its gravity is too weak to hold on to it. The exosphere contains hydrogen, helium, oxygen, sodium, calcium, potassium in gas form. These are continually being lost into space; while at the same time, they are replaced by solar wind and by radioactive decay of materials on Mercury's surface.
It is much smaller than Earth, so has less gravity to hold an atmosphere. Also, its nearness to the Sun means that many molecules have been blasted away by the solar winds (streams of energetic particles from the Sun).
Because mercury doesn't have and atmosphere it isn't able to hold on to the heat from the Sun. So at night Mercury gets VERY cold. Venus has a very thick atmosphere and it is able to hold on to its heat. Mercury: all the heat escapes because it doesn't have a thick atmosphere Venus: has a thick atmosphere and it is able to hold no to the heat unlike mercury
So NO. Mercury does NOT have water on it. The conditions on Mercury sure rule it out. As Mercury slowly rotates, the side facing the Sun experiences extremely high temperatures. At noon on the equator, the temperature rises to 700 Kelvin. And then dips down to just 100 Kelvin at night, since there's no atmosphere to hold in the temperature. Any water on the surface of Mercury would boil away quickly and escape into space… Read More
Why doesn't mercury's serface hold heat as it rotates from fasing towards the sun to facing away from it?
Mercury has no atmosphere. That is why Mercury doesn't hold any heat.
What accounts for the fact that Venus has the hottest surface temperatures of any planet in the Solar System?
Venus is the hottest planet, as it is close to the sun and also has a thick arbon Dioxide atmosphere that holds the heat more effectively like an oven. Mercury has no atmosphere as it is not massive enough, so although its closer to the sun, it does not hold its heat. Surface temperatures on Venus average 735 Kelvin or 460 °C.
