I. Objective: ILLUSTRATING THE SOLAR SYSTEM TO SCALE AND HOW THEY REVOLVE
AROUND THE SUN
A. Materials: Basic information

II. Procedure:
1. Draw the solar system to scale. Use the scale 2 mm.=10,000 km for the
diameter 1 mm=50 million km for the distance around the sun.
2. Refer to the Basic Information About the Planets for their diameters and
distance from
the sun.
3. Scale the diameter of each planet using the formula.

X
conversion
of the planet
factor
Example:
Scaled Diameter =
4, 880 km.
X
2mm.
of Mercury
10, 000
= 0.976 mm.
That means, when you draw the scaled diameter of mercury, it is 0.976 mm.
4. Use the same conversion factor as you scale the diameter of each planet.
However
change the diameter reading. It must depend upon the planets diameter.
5. Scale each planets distance in million kilometers from the sun using the
formula given
in number 3.
Example:
Scaled distance
= 58 million x
1 mm.
Of the Mercury
= 1.16 mm.
That means, when you draw the scaled distance of the mercury from the sun is 1.16
6. Use the same conversion factor as you scale the distance from the sun.
However change the distance reading. It must be that of the planets distance you are
to scale.
7. Enter your observations in a table like this.
Planets

Scaled Diameter

Scaled Distance from the


Sun

8.Use the data in the table to illustrate the relative sizes and distance of the planets
from the sun. For your illustration, use a bond paper.
9. Use the scaled diagram of the solar system to illustrate the motion of the planets
around the sun. Use an arrow to represent the direction of motion.
