    Angular velocity, with the addition of a product’s moment of inertia is what creates an angular momentum quantity (Bi 2014). Moving objects keep a constant velocity, however, if acted on by outside forces this would not occur. Say a moving object like, the planet Saturn keeps this constant speed, it thus keeps a constant momentum, since the system is conserved. This conserved system of the planet Saturn would be referred to as angular momentum, since Saturn rotates about an axis. Saturn is also…

    According to the Nice theory, The Kuiper belt lies out past the orbit of Pluto. Instead of asteroids, The Kuiper belt has millions of icy comets that circle the Sun very fast, and because of that fast motion, they were flung outward by encounters with the giant planets. Scientist believe that the comet Pluto is a part of the Kuiper belt. The Oort cloud is not really a cloud, but a mass of a over a trillion comets that circle the Sun at a great distance. In fact, the Oort cloud extends over…
