Compare and contrast an asteroid and a comet.

  • science -

    I will be happy to critique your thinking.

  • science -

    for comparisons: both orbit the sun, both have the same origination

    for contrasts: comets made of ice and dirt, asteroid made of rock; comets are mostly in the Kuiper Belt, asteroids in the asteroid belt; comets have an elliptical orbit, asteroids have a circular orbit

    That's all I can think of but I think I need more.

  • science -

    can we see any asteroids with the naked eye? What about comets (think on tails).
