Solar System Formation


This is a nebula.

This is where stars are forming.


These are little solar nebulae!


Proto-sun and accretion disk


Accretion

  • Dus grains stick together through electricity to form planetessimals.

  • Collisions between planetessimals melt the surface which acts as a “glue” causing them to grow larger.

  • Largest planetessimals pull in material through gravity and become proto-planets.


  • Gravity causes….

  • The nebula to contract

  • The center heats up (from pressure)

  • Rotation causes…

  • The nebula to flatten out.
