Formation of solar system:


  • Evidence suggest that the solar system was formed about 4.5 - 5 billion years ago.

  • It is thought that it has arisen from huge , spinning clouds of cosmic dust and gas termed as SOLAR NEBULA.

  • As its cloud condensed , the rotational momentum threw out a ring of cloud which continued rotating around the central mass.

  • The central mass condensed further and formed the sun.

  • As the sun condensed , it become hotter and brighter by conversion of gravitational energy and heat.

  • The rings of cloud broke up into eddies of varying sizes , the material of these eddies condensed because of gravitation into the planets that kept on revolving around the sun in different elliptical orbits.
