1. rings were form due to the massive exploded planet who enter in the saturn's atmosphere and the same is ringing there?
2. are the saturn's rings are transperent ?
3. saturn's rings are nothing but a big cluster of dust and stones?
4. saturn's rings creates noise while it get a jerk when saturn rotates?
5. or no jerk to it, the rings are closely attached with the saturn?
6. how much of the total mass of saturn bifurcated in the rings?
7. the rings cause the excessive gravity?
8. or the pool creates the extra gravitational force due to the rings?
9. how many kilometeres area in circumference the rings are covering?
10. the planet who crossed the barrycenter of the saturn and struck near by the saturn in number of pieces and dust and small particles ?

The total mass of all the material in Saturn's rings is less than
the mass of the largest asteroid, Ceres.

This is not so far from the leading idea, actually-- it is thought that the rings came from a large moon that strayed too close to Saturn and was torn apart by Saturn's gravity (not a collision with Saturn itself, note that Saturn does not have a solid surface)


2. are the saturn's rings are transperent ?

No, in pictures you can actually see the dark shadow of the rings against Saturn's surface


3. saturn's rings are nothing but a big cluster of dust and stones?

More ice, but yes.


4. saturn's rings creates noise while it get a jerk when saturn rotates?
5. or no jerk to it, the rings are closely attached with the saturn?

The rings are orbiting, so go around faster than Saturn's surface. They can't carry sound, there is very little gas.


6. how much of the total mass of saturn bifurcated in the rings?
7. the rings cause the excessive gravity?
8. or the pool creates the extra gravitational force due to the rings?

As pointed out by Jeff Root, there's not enough mass in the rings for any significant gravitational effects.

thanks Ken G for the replies, but the answers of 9 and 10 ! i am awaiting for that.

Here are the dimensions of each ring. Calculating the area of each ring is a trivial matter of geometry.

10. the planet who crossed the barrycenter of the saturn and struck near by the saturn in number of pieces and dust and small particles ?

I have no idea what you are asking here. Perhaps you could rephrase it.

thanks saluki for the reply. the rings are made later? after the formation of the middle ball ? this is a nearby planet which broken into pieces and moving along with saturn?

Yes, that's the idea.
