The Mean Distance From Sun
The Mean Distance from the Sun is not a fixed value for each planet but varies depending on their elliptical orbits. For instance, Earth's mean distance from the Sun is approximately 93 million miles (150 million kilometers), while Mars, being farther from the Sun, has a mean distance of about 142 million miles (228 million kilometers). These differences have significant implications for factors like temperature, radiation exposure, and the overall energy received from the Sun.
