Doesnt 100x distance from its star compared to earth make it an exoplanet and not a full planet?

lifeslammer: Doesnt 100x distance from its star compared to earth make it an exoplanet and not a full planet?


? An exoplanet is just any planet outside *our* solar system but which is gravitationally bound to its host star(s). If it's not gravitationally bound to any particular star(s), then it's a rogue planet.

100 au is still within our own sun's gravitational influence so, for a bigger star, 100 au may be no more than a trip to the chemists.
