How was earth formed ? (Arun asked)

Answer:

Earth formed around 4.54 billion years ago. The earth was formed in the same way as the sun, planets, stars. At first the earth was a hot glowing ball of white hot gases with a temperature that was millions of degrees Fahrenheit. This was caused by particles of gases being drawn together and compressed, giving off a lot of heat.
