What Is the terrestrial planet that has no atmosphere

what is the terrestrial planet that has no atmosphere

Which best describes stellar equilibrium

For most of the life of a star, there is a balance between pressure caused by heat in the core and weight of gravity the star's mass.

There is an equilibrium, or very close to it, all throughout the star. At each point in the star, the mass above is pressing down due to gravity, but because the matter in the star is so hot, there is a balancing pressure holding up the mass above. At the core, the temperature is highest and the pressure is greatest and both decrease towards the surface.

Once the fuel at the center of a star become exhausted, the stellar equilibrium is lost and the life of the star begins to fade. Depending on the mass of the star, this may be relatively quiet (small stars) or bigger stars can produce a super nova and for the largest stars the end can be a black hole.

Stellar equilibrium is a balance between what two things

Outward pressure and inward gravity

Titan is a moon that orbits around

Saturn

What was found by astronomers who noticed a strange pattern in the orbit of Uranus

Retains heat energy from the sun in the atmosphere

carbon dioxide

Why isn't it possible to have a full moon and a solar eclipse at the same time

In a full moon, the Moon is on the other side of Earth from the Sun. In a solar eclipse, the Moon is on the SAME side of the Earth as the Sun.

Gas giants have many more moons than terrestrial planets due to have higher

Gas giants have a higher mass.

This means that the gas giants have a more gravity to hold moons in orbit around them.

Earths seasons are caused by its

Revolution around the sun

Is it true Pluto has a moon

Pluto has five moons.

Do terrestrial planets have more moons than the outer gas giants

Terrestrial means on Earth so Earth is the only terrestrial planet

This is incorrect, the first 4 planets are terrestrial as they are solidly bound planets. Pluto was also a terrestrial dwarf planet. Any planet can have moons but due to the gas giants having larger gravitational forces they have traditionally gathered more moons. Thusly, no.

What is it called when the moon is not visible do to the earths shadow

shadow draw

That state of affairs is called Lunar Eclipse.

What is a function of earths rain forest

Titan is a moon that orbits around-

Titan is a moon the orbits around Saturn. This is a planet.

When the moon is on the side of the earth and opposite the sun

When the moon is on the side of the earth opposite the sun you get a full-moon.
