The most obvious structural feature of planetary bodies is their roundness. This arises because of the dominate roles of the two effects of gravity and case of the deformation of matter, whether gas, liquid or solid. This project is about proving and solving out the time scale (τ ) of flow restoring the body to spherical shape when we consider a slightly deformed self-gravitating sphere and also checking for spherical of different planetary objects.
