Solar Nebular Hypothesis

The idea behind the Solar Nebular Hypothesis is that the solar system was condensed from an enormous cloud of hydrogen, helium, and a few other elements and rocks. Around five billion years this cloud of materials began to spin and contract together into a disk shape under their own gravitational forces. The particles started combined together, protoplanets, to eventually form planets. A great mass of the material eventually began to form together, protosun, and make up the sun. I agree with the Solar Nebular Hypothesis. I am a person that likes to base my opinions scientifically. Evidence wise this theory makes more sense than any other does. I stand the same way on how the earth was created as I do with the development with humans. I believe in evolution because the evidence is there it is not just some everyday whacko's theory. There is logic and facts to back it up. The Solar Nebular Hypothesis can be backed up as true by looking at the order of the planets and what elements they contain and their gravitational fields. I am not an expert but this is what I believe in. I disagree with the big bang theory because it just doesn't make sense how when a huge massive ball can explode and create a solar system that has planets that rotate around a sun in the middle. If there were an explosion you would think that particles would be going every which way. With the Solar Nebular Hypothesis it makes sense that 1 gravitational forces of elements can begin to pull each other in and start spinning in a circle and sense there is less gravity in space that maybe why the planets are still rotating around the sun, which is logically in the center sense it is the largest in mass, even today five billion years later.

    Stars start there life as a cloud of gas called a nebula. Mainly consisting of hydrogen and helium. The gases will then be drawn to a centre point of gravity which will then create a protostar. And then the nuclear fusion in the core of the star will star and the star will stabilize. This is known as the stars equilibrium when pressure equals gravity.…

    There have been a variety of theories that have been proposed to explain the formation of the Solar system. Some theories have been the tidal theory, collision theory, etc. There is not a single theory that explains it all, but there is only one that has been accepted ("Astronomy” n.pag.). The nebular hypothesis or nebular theory, is the best descriptive model for the formation of the Solar System. This theory was first proposed by two Europeans, Pierre Laplace and Immanuel Kant. Kant’s essential idea was that the Solar System started as a cloud of dispersed particles. He assumed that since the particles had common gravitational attractions, that would cause them to start colliding and moving, at which point they would remain attached together because of the chemical forces. As some of these masses became greater than others, they grew still more rapidly,…

    A nebula, an immense cloud of hydrogen gas and dust, condenses into smaller regions of matter. On occasion, one of these regions collapses under the force of its own gravitational attraction, often triggered by an outside force, like a nearby supernova-an explosion of a star. After the collapse of a cloud, atoms begin gravitating together to form a condensed center. The condensed center is a protostar. As gravity pulls in more gas and dust, pressure builds, causing the protostar core to heat up. Clouds and matter begin to rotate around the protostar and flatten due to their rotation. They surround the protostar like a rotating disk. The protostar continues to grow and its core continues to heat. When the core is hot enough, nuclear fusion begins. The start of nuclear fusion is technically the beginning of a star's life. Eventually, when the nuclear energy runs out, the star dies. Depending on the size and mass of the star, it can go through many stages and die in different ways-one of those ways being a supernova.…

    The Big Bang theory has many supporters both in and apart from the field of science because there are several arguments that determine that this account is certainly feasible. The foundation for this belief is that science has undoubtedly determined that the universe has a definite beginning. Also, Hubble’s Law states that galaxies appear to be moving away from us (Big Bang theory: An overview, 2002). This presumption suggests that the universe is currently expanding and cooling and also supports the…

    In conclusion, to why i believe in the questionable theory of evolution is because of the chemical and anatomical similarities of related life forms. Which concludes that organisms evolved from a common ancestor. Also the unused structures called vestigial structures. Which seem to have no purpose at all and the organism can function properly without it. In the end those are the reason why I believe in the very complex theory of evolution.…
