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

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

Mars is the second smallest planet besides Mercury and is still fairly small.

Earth is the biggest of the terrestrial or rocky planets, but smaller than any of the gas giants.

the 4 rocky planets are smaller and the 4 gas planets are bigger

The inner planets are smaller than the outer planets. This may be because the outer planets are called gas giants. This means that gas can accumulate in size at times, and this can be one of the situations.

You could compare them by: * size * mass * volume * ability to support life * atmospheric features * diameter * surface features * temperature * etc.

Saturn is the second-largest planet, only surpassed by Jupiter. You could fit over 763 Earths into it.

Jupiter is by far the largest. In fact, it is larger than every other planet in our solar system put together.

Pluto is a lot smaller than other planets in out solar system. This was not noticeable in earlier years because there wasn't the technology to very accurately compare it to other planets. Because of it's small size Pluto was determined a dwarf.

Saturn and Jupiter are the two largest planets but Jupiter is bigger


the dwarf planets are bigger than the moon so they are considered "dwarf" planets and not moons LOVE: CAPT. CRUNCH

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.

Earth rates third of the planets because of its thrid place in size.

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).

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.

yes there is 2 planets but there are also dwarf ones too.

Rocky planets are much smaller than gas giants.

No but the sizes of OTHER planets and planetesimals can and do.

Other stars, other than our own, have had multiple planets detected in an orbit around them. Its highly likely that there are other systems with eight planets. Planets the size of mercury or even slightly bigger planets the size of the Earth are extremely difficult to detect, so a star with four or five large known planets may actually have a lot more planets.
