Largest planet in the solar system

the largest planet in the solar system is Jupiter

What about Earth allows it to maintain bodies of water

moderate temperatures and strong gravity (APEX)

An explosion of a star

When a star explodes, it is referred to as a nova. If the star is large enough, it will create a super nova. And if the star is dense enough, it does not explode, but instead collapses on itself and forms a black hole

What Is the terrestrial planet that has no atmosphere

what is the terrestrial planet that has no atmosphere

Contains mostly older stars with a red color

elliptical galaxy....

What planet has the widest swings in temperature

Mercury has the widest in temperature swings.

Venus is the hottest planet.

Saturn is the planet with visible rings and lots of moons,

jupiter is the largest planet (( duh))

Uranus rotates on it's side.

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

Is Jupiter the hottest planet in the solar system

No. jupiter is not the hottest planet in the solar system. The hottest planet is Venus

Plants take in and release oxygen gas

plants takes in carbon dioxide and release blank gas?

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

Neptune

The dense remains of a star

Depends on the mass of the host star.

It could be:-

  1. White Dwarf
  2. Neutron Star
  3. Black Hole
The moon is not visible to observers on Earth

new moon

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.

Which types of clouds are made up mostly of ice crystal's

Cirrus Clouds are mostly made up entirely of ice crystals.

How does an accretion disk form

An creation disk may eventually form a

Remnants of a planet that never formed

That may be the asteroids.

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.

The giant red spot is found on the planet

the giant red spot is found in the planet jupiter.

Are the phases of the moon caused by the moon moving into the sun's shadow

no its caused by the moon moving in to the earths shadow

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.

Which contributes to the lack of evidence of the period of heavy bombardment on earth

Plate movements
