    A dwarf planet follows this critieria:

    1. Orbits the sun

    2. Has sufficient mass to be round, due to gravity

    3. Has not cleared neighborhood around its orbit

    4. Is not a satellite

    An example of a dwarf planet would be Pluto, Eris, Ceres, MakeMake, or Haumea, as they are all round, the orbit the sun, but they are not a satellite, nor have they cleared their surrounding neighborhoods.
