V. Compare and contrast the features in the planet Venus, Earth, and Mars.Venus, Earth, and Mars are all terrestrial planets. They have distinct features that givedifference to their composition and form.Venus and Earth have somewhat similar features in terms of mass, diameter, density,gravity, and escape velocity. The differences of their data are quite close with each other, withEarth having a higher number compared to Venus. Mars on the other hand have a smaller data inits mass, diameter, density, gravity, and escape velocity compared to Venus and Earth. Thesurface pressure in Venus is extremely higher that the surface pressure present in Earth and Mars,with a number of 96 bars compared to Earth’s 1 bars and Mars’ 0.01 bars surface pressures.Venus and Mars have a similar composition of atmosphere. Venus having 96% CO2 and 3.5% N,while Mars having 95% CO2, 2.7% N, and 1.6% Ar. Earth have a unique composition ofatmosphere than the other two planet, having 77% N, 21% O2, and 1% Ar. All three planets have
