Answer . The Pluto with a surface temperature of -235 degree C.But as now a days Pluto being not considered as an authentic planet in our solar system other than a mere KBO (kuiper belt object).The coldest planet status should go to Neptune (-213 degree C) & Uranus (-210 degree C). Neptune maybe. It is farthest from the Sun. Actually, perhaps surprisingly, some sources say Uranus is slightly colder than Neptune. Neptune seems to have an internal heat source. If you wanted to include "Dwarf Planets", then Pluto or Eris, which is even FARTHER out. We don't really have good temperature information on the trans-Neptunian dwarf planets.
Mars, bizarrely... The mean surface gravity of a planet is determined primarily by its mass and its radius. Prior to the reclassification of the major bodies in our solar system, the smallest planet by volume and mass was Pluto . Pluto has a mean surface gravity of 0.062 Earth equivalents. However, Pluto has been reclassified as a dwarf planet. This demotes the planet Mercury into last place in terms of volume and mass. You might expect, therefore, Mercury to have the lowest surface gravity of the eight major planets. However, the planet Mars , despite having about twice the mass of Mercury, has a radius about 1000 km larger. So, actually Mars has a fractionally lower mean surface gravity. Mercury = 0.3772 Earth equivalents Mars = 0.3769 Earth equivalents (measured at the equator). For "surface gravity", the mass of a planet is effectively concentrated at the center (the center of mass). So, the gravitational force is less when the surface is further from the center of mass. So, a planet's surface gravity increases with its mass, but reduces with its radius. One of the small contributory factors to this reversal in expected ranking may be due to the comparatively slow rotation of Mercury (58.6 Earth days per rotation with an average speed of 10.9 km/h. Compare Mars: 1.03 Earth days and 868 km/h). The small rotational speed on Mercury means the outward acting centrifugal effect, which opposes the inward pull of gravity, is small. (Strictly speaking this only matters when we are talking about what scientists call "apparent surface gravity".)
LOL i just wanted to answer a question but now that im already here it's VENUS! peace :)
Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system due to thick layer of clouds that traps heat within the planet.. All planets have very different temperatures at the surface. Mercury's Maximum Temperature 465Â°C (870Â°F) Mercury's Minimum Temperature -184Â°C (-300Â°F) Venus' Average Temperature 449Â°C (850Â°F) Earth's Average Temperature 7.2Â°C (45Â°F) Mars's Maximum Temperature 36Â°C (98Â°F) Mars's Minimum Temperature -123Â°C (-190Â°F) Jupiter's Average Temperature -153Â°C (-244Â°F) Saturn's Average Temperature -184Â°C (-300Â°F) Uranus' Maximum Temperature -184Â°C (-300Â°F) Neptune's Average Temperature -223Â°C (-370Â°F)
Venus. Earth's Evil twin. If you want the specifics, this planet isinstant death. The clouds are poisonous, the ground is extremelyhot. Over 800 degrees Fahrenheit, and this thing has like, twelvevolcanoes within a 3 meter radius. Mercury is also hot too. You might want to compare temperatures tomake sure.
The highest temperature in record was from the Libyan desert for136 Fahrenheit or 58 Celsius. The coldest temperature in return was-126 Fahrenheit or -88 Celsius that was measured from VostokStation, Antarctica.
Jupiter has the coldest temperature with a low of -776 C! . There's no such thing as a temperature colder than absolute zero, which is -273.15Â°C! Most of the gas giants give off more heat than they receive from the sun due to their distances from the sun and the extreme temperatures of their cores. Because the core of Uranus is much cooler than the cores of the other gas giants, and because the extreme tilt between its rotational axis and its orbital plane results in large parts of the planet having periods of night that last for decades, Uranus has the lowest atmospheric temperature ever recorded in the solar system, -224Â° C! (The gas giants are literally giant balls of gas, so when scientists refer to the "surface" of a gas giant they are usually referring to the area in its atmosphere where the atmospheric pressure is the same as the atmospheric pressure on Earth at sea level.)
mercury 76 to 130 Venus 84 to 218 earth -40 to 40 mars 10 to 25 sorry that's all i know
The freezing point of fresh water under one atmosphere of pressure is 0'Centigrade. The boiling point of fresh water under one atmosphere of pressure is 100'Centigrade. If your asking about natural fresh-water systems high latitude locations freeze every winter. Boiling water is found in volcanic locations such as yellow stone park and are inhabited by abundant life. Scientifically speaking the boiling point point of water falls with pressure until there is no possibility of water at all. This occurres at a pressure of 6E -4 MPa and a temperature of 0,01 'C. Ice will sublime directly into steam. or..... 4degrees celcius at the bottom, 22degrees at the top- warmest point 4degrees celccius at the bottom, 0degrees at the top
The bigger the Star or planet the more gravity. The Jupiter has more gravity because its big just like an Guy with big muscle. It has the ability to push and pull an heavier object but Black hole is small but the most gravity puller on the universe
The record for the lowest temperature ever recorded in Arkansas is-29 degrees Fahrenheit, measured in 1905. The highest temperatureever recorded in the state was 120 degrees Fahrenheit, and thisrecord happened in 1936.
Each planet has a very different surface temperature. Pluto'ssurface temperature ranges around -375 Fahrenheit while Neptune isa little warmer at around -200 degrees. Earth has an averagesurface temperature of around 57 degrees F., and Mercury and Venushover at between 800 and 900 degrees Fahrenheit.
The highest temperature ever was 103 degrees, which was recorded on July 29, 2009. The lowest recorded temperature was 0 degrees, which was recorded on January 31, 1950.

42.6C at Wajir and -3.3C at Ettrick Estate. Unofficial -19C at high elevations on Mount Kenya
Mercurys surface temperature varies a lot, as it has a very slow rotation on its axis and no atmopshere to effectively hold a regular temperature. Mercurys surface temperature drops dramatically once it faces away from the sun. The side facing away from the sun can become very cold (100 Kelvin or -173'C at the equator, 80 Kelvin or -193'C nearer the poles), while the side facing the sun can see temperatures soar to 700 Kelvin at the equator (430'C).
The highest recorded temperature in January has been 37Â°C that's 99Â°F , with the lowest recorded temperature 19Â°C ,about 66Â°F.
The planet with the hottest temperature is Venus with its temperature of 464 degrees Celsius
Typical high temperatures in the warm months are around 72 ÃÂ°F, in the winter, temperatures drop to approximately -10 ÃÂ°C (13 ÃÂ°F)
some people wouldsay venus but the answer is mars....cause it is closest to the sun. -MintGreenGirl21's answer. My answer is Venus. Because Venus is closer to the Sun then Mars is. Get Smart.
Venus has the highest temperature (temp.) because all the differentgases and clouds trap any light that go into Venus' atmosphere. Venus' thick atmosphere of carbon dioxide or CO2 gas causes what wecall the "greenhouse effect". Energy from the Sun is radiated off the planet's surface at longerwavelengths than the incoming radiation. This radiation is to someextent prevented from going back into space by the atmosphere. This heat retaining atmosphere makes the surface on Venus hotterthan Mercury, which is closer to the Sun, but which has noatmosphere. Venus has no ocean. Venus is covered by thick, rapidly spinningclouds that trap surface heat, creating a scorched greenhouse-likeworld with temperatures hot enough to melt lead and pressure sointense that standing on Venus would feel like the pressure felt900 meters deep in Earth's oceans. These clouds reflect sunlight inaddition to trapping heat. Because Venus reflects so much sunlight,it is usually the brightest planet in the night sky.
The lowest temperature recorded on Earth was -150 degrees F, and the highest temperature ever recorded was 135 degrees F.
The lowest ever temperature recorded in Hawaii is actually 12 degrees The highest ever temperature recorded in Hawaii is actually 100 degrees !
Highest was 41.6 C at Los Angeles, and the lowest was -28.3 C at Balmaceda.
I'm pretty sure that Tundra is a level that was forged in The Crypt on Sandbox in Halo 3. It isn't a very well made map and a lot of people don't like it. no you're wrong its a biome, idiot .ikr The tundra's average temperature is about 5 degrees Celsius and less than 100mm of precipitation each year
The planet Jupiter has no specific surface. It is a gas giant with thin clouds on the exterior and progressively denser and hotter gas farther in, where the pressure creates liquid and then solid metallic hydrogen. The hottest point within Jupiter is near the boundary between the amosphere and the smaller rocky core, and is estimated as high as 36000Â°C. The pressure there is millions of times the pressure at sea level on Earth. The coldest point is in the outer clouds, just below the thermosphere, where the atmospheric pressure is about 1/10 that at sea level on Earth. The temperature there is as low as 112 K (-161Â°C).
The highest temperatures of all the planets are found on Venus; Venus' average temperature is 449 C!
The highest temperature was almost about 122- 110 degree Fahrenheitpossibly to the 130's but the lowest temperature was 2 or 3 degreeCelsius (35.6 to 37.4 Â°F)
The highest recorded temperature is 100 degrees F. The lowest recorded temperature is minus 80 degrees F.
The highest temperature is believed to be at the boundary of the metallic hydrogen lower atmosphere with the rocky core, which could be as high as 36000Â°C. The lowest temperature is near the cloud tops, with a temperature at the 0.1 bar level being 112 K (- 161Â°C).
The highest temperature recorded in Michigan is 112Â°, Fahrenheit. This record high was recorded on July 13, 1936 at Mio. The lowest temperature in Michigan, -51Â°, was recorded on February 9, 1934 at Vanderbilt. 56
Although Mercury is the closest planet to the sun, it is only the second hottest planet after Venus. Venus is the hottest as the thick Carbon Dioxide atmosphere holds the heat more effectively, while Mercury has no atmosphere.
IT can get brutal cold in parts of alaska below -40 it can i suspect occasionally breach 90 degrees. I am sure it has been 100 degrees somewhere atleast once
The Taiga Biome. You may think it is the tundra, but you, my friend, are wrong.
In the Antarctic Desert temperatures can plunge to more than 100degrees below zero F. In the Sahara and Mojave Deserts thetemperatures sometime approach 140 degrees F. above zero.
Maxwell Montes is the coolest site on Venus' surface due to its elevation. It is named after UK physicist James Maxwell.
Venus, due to its close proximity to the sun and because of itsthick carbon Dioxide atmosphere, which holds the heat moreeffectively (Mercury has no atmosphere). Surface temperatures onVenus average 735 Kelvin or 460 Â°C.
Venus, because of its atmosphere. The greenhouse affect keeps the atmosphere from letting certain gases out so it just gets hotter and the atmosphere just gets thicker.

Venus (hottest but only second closest to sun) Mercury (2nd hotest but closest planet to sun) Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune (coldest)
How does the inner planets distance from the sun relate to the average surface temperature of the planet?
You might expect a planet to be hotter if it's nearer the Sun. This is true apart from Venus, which is the exception. Venus has a higher average surface temperature than Mercury. We believe this is because of the "greenhouse effect" of the atmosphere of Venus.
Which planet has the lowest surface temperature of any planet and an atmosphere composed mostly of nitrogen?
Neptune (NovaNet) There's something wrong here. Neptune is mainly a hydrogen atmosphere. Earth is the planet with a mainly nitrogen atmosphere, but the coldest is Neptune.
Mercury. At the equator, the surface temperature on Mercury can range from -173Â°C to 430Â°C, while temperatures at the poles can plummet to around -193Â°C. The large temperature range is due to a very long apparent day length, from a combination of the time taken to orbit and the planets axial rotation. Its lack of atmosphere also means that it cannot retain atmospheric heat like the other planets, that would otherwise even out the temperature differences. Temperatures at the poles can plummet to around -193Â°C.
The ones closest to the sun. the order is Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune and Pluto
There are about 2 dozen major deserts in the world and each has its ownweather statistics. The Antarctic Desert measured a record coldtemperature of -129 degrees F and the hottest temperature ever reliablymeasured was +134 degrees F in Death Valley of the Mojave Desert. Ifyou provide a specific desert location we can provide a more specificanswer.
That planet is Venus. The rotation period of Venus is 243 Earth days. That's called a "sidereal day". On Earth the sidereal day is about 23 hours and 56 minutes. There is also the "solar day", based on the position of the Sun in the sky. On Earth, that's exactly 24 hours. On Venus the solar day is about 117 Earth days in length. As you can see, there is a huge difference in the lengths of the two days on Venus. That's because Venus rotates very slowly.
The highest temperature recorded inMississippi was 115 degrees Fahrenheit recorded on July 29, 1930 atHolly Springs, Mississippi. The lowest temperature recorded inMississippi was -19 degrees Fahrenheit recorded on January 30, 1966at Corinth, Mississippi.
