Ascientist discovers a new body between the orbit of neptune and the kuiper belt. the object is round and travels in an orbit around neptune with other space objects. the scientist claims that she has found a new dwarf planet. where is the scientist’s error? the object is an asteroid, not a dwarf planet. the object is a moon, not a dwarf planet. the object is not a dwarf planet because it travels with other objects. the object is not a dwarf planet because it is round.
(B) The object is a moon, not a dwarf planet.
B) The object is a moon, not a dwarf planet.
The object does not orbit the sun, so it eliminates the possibility that it is a planet or a dwarf planet. (The difference between a planet and a dwarf planet is that the dwarf planet has not yet cleared its orbit.)
It is also mentioned that the object is round, so the object cannot be an asteroid.
Because of the fact that the body it is round and orbits a planet, it is concluded that the object is a moon (also known as satellite) of the planet.
B.The object is a moon, not a dwarf planet
A body is a dwarf planet if it is round in shape, revolves around the sun in elliptical orbit. Its neighborhood may not be clear.
The body discovered by scientist lies between orbits of Neptune and Kuiper belt and is round in shape. It orbits around the planet - Neptune along with other space objects. A body which revolves about a planet is its moon and not a dwarf planet.
i did the assigment
it is b
the answer is b on edugenity
Hope this helped
The object is a moon, not a dwarf planet because dwarf planets would be revolving around the sun and moons are know to orbit planets.
Because this body orbits around another planet, Neptune, and is with the Kuiper Belt, I would assume it is actually a moon
