Double Helix Club 4: Making a scale model solar system

3

In this weeks Double Helix club we built a scale model of the solar system. We used the S1 and S2 hallway to show the relative distance between planets.

Use this website to find out your weight on other planets in the solar system.

Your weight can change depending on gravity but your mass is indepedent of gravity.

weight (N) = gravitational field strength ( on Earth this is 9.81) x mass (kg).

Please leave your reflections as comments below, Thanks
