Mars is the second smallest planet besidesand is still fairly small.
Mars is the second smallest planet, Mercury is the smallest. So out of the eight planets, it is comparitively small. Mars' diameter is about half that of Earths. The Gas giant planets are much larger than the inner planets, so these would dwarf the planet Mars (and Earth).
Well, Mars is the second smallest in terms of the other planets. Only Mercury is smaller.
Of the eight planets in our solar system (ignoring Pluto and other dwarf or minor planets), Mars is second smallest... only Mercury is smaller. Mars is about 53% of the diameter of Earth (about 15% of the volume), also about fifteen percent of its mass. Standing on its surface you'd feel a little under 2/5ths of Earth's surface gravity.
mars is a small planet
It is the smallest, except for Mercury.
mars and venus!
It is the biggest terrestrial planet, but far smaller than the four jovian planets.
Mars is smaller than Earth.
Earth is a little bigger than the other terrestrial planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars), but the immensity of the jovian planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) cannot be matched by Earth's. Jupiter, the largest planet, has a diameter over eleven times greater than that of Earth.
All four rocky planets are much smaller than gas planets.
Jupiter is much bigger. It is larger than all the other planets put together.
neptune is the third bigest planet from the solar system
it is small, even smaller than our moon
During my extensive travels, I noticed that all of the planets from Jupiter on out are bigger than any of the planets from Mars on in.
Mars has a diameter about 0.53 of the Earth's. Mars has a mass about 0.107 times the Earth's.
IT is the almost the same size
All of the jovian planets are more massive than any of the terrestrial planets.
Mars is the second smallest planet. Only Mercury is smaller.
Because of Earth's size, and considering it as one of the smallest planets, it has a weak gravity compared to the OTHER planets. Most planets have greater gravity because of their size. Earth has a stronger gravity compared to mars, mercury, and venus.
The 'little planets' between Mars and Jupiter are called asteroids.
It is estimated that about 1.3 million planets the size of Mars could fit inside the sun. By comparison about one million planets the size of earth could fit in the sun.
The Inner planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. They are the planets closest to the sun. They are similar in that they all have solid surfaces, are almost the same size and have at least one moon.
Why does the planets always rotate? what is the temperataure of the planet mars?hoe long in earth days does it take mars to rotate around the earth?what is the size of the planet mars?could a human survive on the planet mars?
Its Equatorial radius about 3,396.2 Km which makes it 0.533 Earths.See the photo of (from left to right) Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars to scale:
