Of the seven other planets that orbit the sun, three are smaller than Earth and four are larger.
no dwarf planets are smaller the Earth and the other planets.
Mercury is smaller than Mars, all of the other planets are larger. That means Venus, Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are all larger than Mars.
Earth is one of the smaller ones.
In our solar system there are 4 planets larger than Earth, which are collectively known as the gas giants; these are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. There are many other planets larger than Earth in other solar systems as well.

This is because the larger planets have more of a gravitational pull. The higher attraction you have to other objects the more likely you are to have them around you. Some believe earth only has a moon because it collided with us from space.
Most of the "exoplanets" that have been studied are much larger than Earth (like Jupiter). This is because the larger planets are easier to detect. A few smaller planets have been detected. I would guess that planets of all sizes are orbiting many stars.
It is the second smallest of the 8 planets, only larger than Mercury.
There are three other planets smaller than the Earth; Mercury (smallest), Mars, and Venus (nearly the same size as Earth).Eris, Ceres, Haumea, and Makemake are all dwarf planets, smaller than our moon. Pluto and Charon are also dwarf planets, even though they have moons.
Venus is a little bit smaller than Earth. Mars is considerably smaller than Earth. There aren't any other planets that are close to Earth in either size or mass.
No. Earth is the 5th largest of the eight planets in the solar system. There are many more planets in the galaxy in other solar systems with numbers estimated in the hundreds of billions. Many that we know of are larger than Earth while some are smaller.
Venus is sometimes called "Earth's twin" or "sister planet" because it is similar in size and density to Earth. Venus is slightly smaller with a diameter of 12,104 kilometers, about 95% of Earth's. Venus and Earth are much larger than Mars and Mercury, and much smaller than the other 4 major planets, which are gas giants.
Earth is the laregst of the four stony planets and smaller than any of the 5 gas planets. The Link shows the size comparison more dramatically.
A smaller body always orbits around a larger body rather than the other way around because the larger body has more gravity
Earth and Venus have very similar masses and sizes; all other planets are either significantly smaller or significantly larger than the Earth. Earth and Venus also are relatively close in terms of their distance from the sun; the orbits of all other planets are farther from the Earth's orbit, except for the closest planet, which is Mercury.
37.5% not including PlutoFirst Answer:50% including Pluto.Second Answer:Of the eight planets in our solar system, three are smaller than earth. 3/8 = 38%.However, we also know (to date) of more than a thousand other planets, orbiting distant stars. None of these planets so far is smaller than earth, but that it because planets as tiny as ours are difficult to detect. We expect probably half of all planets would be our size or smaller.
Venus is referred to as "Earth's twin" because it is similar to Earth in size and composition. All other planets in the solar system are either significantly larger or significantly smaller.
Because of their larger gravity, AND their larger size. Larger gravity will allow smaller hills or other irregularities; larger size means that an irregularity of a certain size will smaller, compared to the size of the planet.
Earth is the 5th-largest planet, but it is the biggest of the "rocky" planets. The four "gas giant" planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, are all larger.
Larger than: -Mercury -Mars -Pluto (I know it isn't a planet anymore!) Same size as: -Earth Smaller than: -Jupiter -Saturn -Uranus -Neptune
It is the biggest the rock-like planets but is smaller than any of the gas planets. This makes it the fifth largest planet in the solar system
No, Pluto is smaller than the 8 major planets. There are other dwarf planets smaller than Pluto.
No. The Moon is large compared to Earth. Almost all other moons are much smaller relative to the planets they orbit.
No. There is no life in human form on the other planets in the Solar System.
This is the solar system.
