Sun, planet, Earth, rate, get further away from
The mass of the Sun is reduced due to the radiation of the Sun, which causes
that the planets are getting further away from the Sun. According to theoretical derivation,
the rate that the planet is getting further away from the Sun equals the rate of solar mass
reduction. Currently the rate that the Earth is getting further away from the Sun equals
1.02m per century, for Mercury it equals to 0.40m per century, and for Pluto it equals
40.32m per century.
