5th grade science project
Make a three dimensional model of a doughnut-shaped eath. Place each of the present earths continents, oceans and seas on the new planet.

could such a plane actually exist in our solar system, why or why not?

Draw or paint a sunset as it would appear if you were a person living on the inner ring surface. Pinpoint your position in relation to the setting sun.

Clue---The size of the hole is equal to the diameter of the present earth.

interesting. Meow!

Hmm, I think you would have to have a good knowledge of physics to understand if a donut-like planet could exist; properties of the core. I don't think it would be able to be held together, that's mainly a guess. Without the core, life wouldn't be present.
The second question depends on the angle of rotation.

It is impossible as then the Earth would have no core so it could not be compared to Earth now.Their would not be the same landforms or anything :cool: :D ng!

I agree will there be minerals with out earth's core?

sciencefreak 10-11-2005 07:03 AM

the core wouldn't exist and what about gravity???

I agree sciencefreak ;) also how would overall be getting sunlight uless it is on an angle what about he bottom? :confused:

sciencefreak 10-12-2005 05:32 AM

to sum it up, the idea is good but the model is doubtful... :(

wisteria 10-13-2005 06:34 AM

I agree 'things happen for a reason' well sometimes :rolleyes:

Yeah, good idea but...
You see there is a physics rule to answer the question...
"why do all planets make the shape of a sphere?"
You see its because the core always pulls things to its centre and so
imagine a sphere magnet, it would always pull the ironfillings onto its centre trying to make them into an appropriate shape which would be a sphere!

Anyway, read my signature and you will understand... :)
