Is Jupiter all Gas?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

Technically no. Jupiter is made mostly of hydrogen and helium, substances we generally think of as gasses, but the extreme pressure inside the planet render those substances into more unusual states of matter. Going deeper into Jupiter, the hydrogen transitions from a gas, to a supercritical fluid, to a liquid-like metallic state. Jupiter may also have a solid core of rock and metal.

Why is Jupiter a gas planet?

Jupiter is a gas planet. it has no solid surface. Instead, the planet has a small, rocky core surrounding by immense layers of gas. Jupiter is gas because its mostly made out of hydrogen and helium. It just is...? Because it is made up of many different gases like hydrogen,heulim.

Is Jupiter one of the giant gas planets?

\n. \nYes, and it is the largest.. However, Shoemaker–Levy comet fragments collided with Jupiter's southern hemisphere between July 16 and July 22, 1994, at a speed of approximately 134,000 mph. The scars from the impacts persisted for many months.... So, some say its a gas giant, but if a co (MORE)

Is Jupiter rocky or gas giant?

\n. \nJupitar is a gas giant, meaning it is made out of gas(obviously) and a rock plant like Mars,the Moon, and Earth are planets that have a surface we can walk on. . ......However, Shoemaker–Levy comet fragments collided with Jupiter's southern hemisphere between July 16 and July 22, 1994, (MORE)

Is Jupiter made out of rock or gas?

Jupiter is one of two planets in our solar system that consistsolely of gas (the Gas Giants.) Jupiter is one, Saturn the other.(Notice both of them have rings.)

Is Jupiter really a gas?

Good question. Jupiter is primarily made of elements that we consider gasses, like Hydrogen and Helium. However, the pressures deep within Jupiter's core are likely to have compressed it into something we cannot duplicate on Earth; liquid metallic hydrogen. We're not certain of this, of course, b (MORE)

What kind of gas does Jupiter have?

jupiter has hydrogen hulium and -o- and it also has aliens with heads the size of basketballs and they are green and -a-ra- is a alien with a green head so is -o- Penut Butter Jelly Time,

Is Jupiter totally gas?

yes it is totally gas. So it is imposible to land on jupiter. Because there is no land... plus u could get crushed by the thick,heavy gas if you even try to land on jupiter. So, yeah it is totally gas. ;^D

Is Jupiter a gas giant or rocky?

Jupiter is a gas giant.However, Shoemaker–Levy comet fragments collided with Jupiter's southern hemisphere between July 16 and July 22, 1994, at a speed of approximately 134,000 mph. The scars from the impacts persisted for many months.

Why is jupiter called a gas giant?

Jupiter is one of a handful of planets known as "gas giants. " Thisis due to the fact that the planet is made of gas, rather than asolid surface.

Is Jupiter a rocky or a gas planet?

Gas! Answer Jupiter is a gas planet, a gas giant. The gas planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune........... However, Shoemaker–Levy comet fragments collided with Jupiter's southern hemisphere between July 16 and July 22, 1994, at a speed of approximately 134,000 mph. The scars f (MORE)

If a planet is the size of Jupiter does it have to be a gas giant?

\n. \nIf we are going to be particular about the definition of 'planet' then yes, the formation models pretty much restrict something with Jupiter's mass being a gas giant. If we were to have a rocky planet with such a mass then it would acquire a hydrogen atmosphere simply by its attractive gravit (MORE)

Can Jupiters gas affect its rings?

Jupiters' gases are confined to the planet by its massive gravity. The rocks and ice are trapped by the same gravity. The two do not interact. Some of the material in the rings falls out of orbit due to loss of forward momentum and fall into Jupiter. They are short lived and disintegrate.

What is Jupiters Atmospheric gas?

Actually pretty close to the Sun. Mostly hydrogen and helium. In fact, it is thought that Jupiter is a failed star, one that never "ignited."

Why would it be misleading to call Jupiter a gas giant?

Even though the elements that make up Jupiter (hydrogen and helium) are gases on earth, the pressure inside Jupiter is so great that it squashes them. At this pressure and temperature, hydrogen cannot exist as a gas or a liquid. It forms what is called a "supercritical fluid." Because of this, some (MORE)

How is Jupiter is a gas Giants?

Most planets are actually composed of rocks and minerals, but Jupiter is actually just a large ball of gas. It is not hard, and a person could not walk on its surface.

If Jupiter is a gas planet why doesn't lightning make it explode?

Explosions like that are caused by rapid chemical reactions. Jupiter is made up mostly of hydrogen. For hydrogen to explode, it needs something to react with. It usually reacts with oxygen. But on Jupiter, there is no oxygen. The only other gas that exists on Jupiter in significant amounts is helium (MORE)

Do Jupiter Neptune and Saturn all have rings?

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune all have rings. Jupiter's ring is thin and dark, and cannot be seen from Earth. Saturn's rings are the most magnificent; they are bright, wide, and colorful. Uranus has nine dark rings around it, and Neptune's rings are also dark, but contain a few bright arcs.
