Fill in the blanks below.
Saturn is about 74,898 miles = 120,536 km in diameter (at the equator at the cloud tops). This is about 9.4 times the _______________________ of the Earth. 764 Earths could fit inside a hollowed-out Saturn.
Saturn's mass is about 5.69 x 1026 kg. Although this is 95 times the mass of the Earth, the _______________________ on Saturn is only 1.08 times the gravity on Earth. This is because Saturn is such a _______________________ planet (and the gravitational force a planet exerts upon an object at the planet's surface is proportional to its mass and to the inverse of its radius squared). A 100 pound person would only weigh 108 _______________________ on Saturn. Saturn is the only planet in our Solar System that is less dense than water. Saturn would float if there were a body of water large enough!
Each day on Saturn takes 10.2 Earth hours. A year on Saturn takes 29.46 Earth years; it takes 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit the _______________________ once.
Saturn is the most oblate (flattened) planet in our Solar System. It has a equatorial diameter of 74,898 miles = 120,536 km (at the cloud tops) and
a polar diameter of 67,560 miles =108,728 km. This is a difference of about 10%. Saturn's flattened shape is probably caused by its fast _______________________ and its gaseous composition. Saturn has many _______________________. This planet was named for the Roman god of agriculture.
