You control two properties of a planet:
albedo and its distance from the Sun. The albedo is the ratio of
the radiation of radiation reflect by an object to the energy incident
upon it. You also control the energy output of the sun. As
you vary these parameters the emission temperature of the planet changes
and is plotted on a graph as a function of distance from the Sun.
The temperature axis can be plotted as degrees Kelvin (K), Celsius (C),
or Fahrenheit (F). The emission temperature of the nine planets is
plotted with the following key: Mercury (M), Venus (V), Earth (E) Mars
(M), Jupiter (J), Saturn (S), Uranus (U), Neptune (N) and Pluto (P).
Both axes can be plotted on a linear or logarithmic scale, you decide.
When you are finished, you can experiment
with another simplified climate model - adding an
