There are 4 terrestrial planets:

  1. Mercury
  2. Venus
  3. Earth
  4. Mars

There are 4 Jovian planets (gas giants):

  1. Jupiter
  2. Saturn
  3. Uranus
  4. Neptune

Furthermore, all 5 dwarf planets are terrestrial:

  1. Ceres
  2. Pluto
  3. Haumea
  4. Makemake
  5. Eris

There are 4 Jovian planets. They are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. They are all gas giants. There are 4 terrestrial planets. They are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. Pluto is now known as a dwarf planet, but it is terrestrial.

No. The Jovian planets are much more massive than the terrestrial planets.


Yes, Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets.



All of the jovian planets are more massive than any of the terrestrial planets.


Terrestrial planets are made of rock. Jovian planets are gas giants.


the Terrestrial planets are the four closest and th Jovian planets are the farthestjoivoin


No, there is more hydrogen on the Jovian planets then the terrestrial ones.


The diameter of a terrestrial and jovian planets are comparable in the sense that the objects orbiting on a terrestrial level are often much bigger than those of jovian planets.


The Terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. The Jovian planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.


Inner planets are terrestrial planets outer are jovian planets


No. Terrestrial planets are much denser than Jovian planets.


No. Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets.


Terrestrial planets are the solid planets like Earth and Mars. Jovian planets are those gas planets like Jupiter and Saturn.


While the terrestrial planets are mostly rocky with metallic cores, the Jovian planets are huge balls of gas. The Jovian Planets are also much larger than the terrestrial ones.


The main difference is size. Jovian planets are very large and terrestrial planets aren't. Jovian planets are also made of gas and terrestrials are made of rocks.


The size. The gaseous Jovian planets are far larger than the inner terrestrial planets.


Jovian planets are more massive and lower in average density. Terrestrial planets are smaller and higher in average density.


Terrestrial. Terrestrial planets are rocky, like Earth (terra=earth), and jovian planets are gaseous, like Jupiter (jove=jupiter).


Terrestrial planets are much smaller with rocky cores whereas Jovian planets are much larger and are made up of mostly gases.


Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are not "Jovian planets". They are called "terrestrial planets". The Jovian planets are the bigger "gas giant" planets.



Terrestrial Planets are more dense than Jovian planets because terrestrial planets are mainly made of solids such as rock and metal, whilst Jovian planets are mainly made of gasses, and the density of solids is much higher than that of gases


The Terrestrial planets have a higher density. Their structure includes a large percentage of rock, while the Jovian planets are composed mostly of gas.


The jovian planets have no solid ground just compressed gases the terrestrial planets have solid ground. The Jovian planets are named gas giants because they are farther then the sun and are not solid and the terrestrial planets are closer to the sun and do not have as much gases.


Apparently in the solar system, there's only one dwarf planet which is Pluto. The remaining 8 planets are not dwarf planets and can be divided into Terrestrial planets and jovian planets. Mercury, Venus, Earth and mars are all terrestrial planets while Jupiter, Saturn and uranus are known as Jovian planets. The term Jovian derives from Jupiter.
