How does the Solar Nebula theory and the concept of conservation of angular momentum explain the formation and orbital properties of planets?. Physics & Astronomy

The Solar Nebula theory tells us that our solar system was most likely formed within a solar nebula because many new planets are seen within solar nebulas. The concept of angular momentum tells us that the planets that are further out, the jovian planets, are made out of gaseous material that spins faster the closer it gets to the axis.
