quote:Originally posted by ROBERTAll the ratios below are at least 99% accurate :-SURFACE GRAVITY RATIOS :-Mercury : Mars = 1 : 1Uranus : Saturn = 1 : 1Mercury/Mars : Uranus/Saturn = 1: 3Uranus/Saturn : Jupiter = 4 : 9Mercury/Mars : Jupiter = 1 : 7(Isn’t it peculiar that the surface gravity of one planet is an exact multiple of the surface gravity of another planet ?).PLANETARY MASS RATIOS :-Mercury : Mars = 1 : 2Venus : Uranus = 1 :18Uranus : Saturn = 2 :13Saturn : Jupiter = 3 : 10Venus : Neptune = 1 :21(Isn’t it peculiar that the mass of one planet is an exact multiple of the mass of another planet ?).Are these exact ratios accidental coincidences, or is there a physical reason for this pattern of whole number ratios ?.(This pattern is reminiscent of the masses of atomic nuclei).
