FAQs on Earth and its Natural Satellites - 1 Class 6 Worksheet Science

1. What is a natural satellite?
Ans. A natural satellite is an object that orbits around a planet or a celestial body under the influence of its gravitational force. The Moon is the Earth's natural satellite.
2. How does the Earth's natural satellite affect tides?
Ans. The Moon's gravitational pull is responsible for causing the tides on Earth. As the Moon orbits around the Earth, its gravitational force creates a bulge of water on the side of the Earth closest to the Moon and another bulge on the opposite side. This causes the high and low tides we experience.
3. How far is the Moon from the Earth?
Ans. The average distance between the Earth and the Moon is about 384,400 kilometers or 238,900 miles. This distance can vary due to the Moon's elliptical orbit.
4. Can natural satellites have their own moons?
Ans. Yes, natural satellites can have their own moons. For example, Saturn's natural satellite, Titan, has its own moon called Enceladus. These smaller moons orbit around the natural satellite, just as the natural satellite orbits around the planet.
5. Can natural satellites have an atmosphere?
Ans. Yes, some natural satellites can have an atmosphere. For instance, Saturn's natural satellite, Titan, has a thick atmosphere composed mainly of nitrogen. This atmosphere makes Titan one of the few celestial bodies, apart from Earth, known to have stable bodies of liquid on its surface.
