1. Density, salinity and temperature 2.Gravitational contraction of the earth's interior 3.Wilson's farm is more likely to have coarse soil than Byron's 4.Conduction, convection and radiation 5.Phosphorus cycle.

Reasons: 1) deep within the oceans the water would be more dense due to higher pressure and the water would be cooler than near the surface 2. Gravitational contraction of the earth's interior would probably take much longer than the first few 100  1000's of years as this is but a short time in geological  history 3. Mountains would be expected to have coarser soil than plains because the soil would often be in place whereas on the plains it most likely has been transported say by rivers and therefore it would be more broken down by transport 4.conduction would be heat transfer within a commonly solid body without movement of the material and convection is heat transfer within a fluid due to hot less dense material rising and cooler more dense sinking by gravity and radiation is like the sun's rays type heating 5. Phosphorus is usually solid at the earth's surface so doesn't affect the atmosphere.

What is the most likely reason that two of the planets have rotations that are different than would be expected by the nebular hypothesis? As the dust cloud collapsed due to gravity, the protostar's gravity sent out shock waves As the growing planet was clearing it's path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet Gravitation influence of other planets They just got tired

The most appropriate answer is "As the growing planet was clearing its path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet". This phenomenon happened to the earth in the early stages of the development of the solar system. Scientist theorize that a planet called 'Thea' collided with the Earth. This collision resulted in the present tilt in the Earth's axis and the creation of the moon.
