•No water and the temperature would be very hot. •It is not too hot or too cold. •Do not have enough air and water.3 Appreciating the perfect placement of the planet Earth in the Solar System The Earth is the only planet in the Solar System that has living things.•The nearer a planet to the Sun is. •All living things would die. . the hotter is the surface of the planet . Why certain planets are not conducive for living things. 1. it receives enough light and heat from the Sun. •The atmosphere of the Earth contains air and there is water on Earth. EFFECT •Earth is the third planet from the Sun. Much farther : •The temperature on the Earth would drop. the colder is the surface of the planet. •Water on Earth would evaporate. •The farther a planet from the Sun is. •Water would freeze into ice. Much nearer : •The temperature on the Earth would rise.
