How do Jovian and terrestrial planets compare?

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

Are the planets that have a higher density the Terrestrial planets or the Jovian planets?

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

Do Jovian planets have low density?

Yes the 4 jovian planets do have low density, And terrestrial plants have high densities

Why are the densities of the terrestrial and jovian planets so different?

The terrestrial planets are primarily composed of rock and the jovian planets are mostly gas (primarily Hydrogen). Rock has a higher density than Hydrogen, giving the terrestrial planets a higher density.

What criteria are the planets placed into either the Jovian or terrestrial groups?

Size, density, composition, and the rate of the rotation are used to place the planets in either Jovian or Terrestrial.

Why are Jovian planets less dense than terrestrial 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

Do the Jovian planets have lower average densities than the terrestrial planets?


Are the jovian planets similar in mass to the terrestrial planets?

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

Are jovian planets larger than terrestrial planets?

Yes, Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets.

The differences between terrestrial and jovian planets?

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

What have more mass Jovian planets or Terrestrial planets?

Jovian planets of course

Why are the densities of terrestrial planets greater than Jovian planets?

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

How does the size of the terrestrial planets compare with jovian planets?

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

Is hydrogen more abundant on terrestrial planets than on Jovian planets?

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

Is a Jovian planets is call Inner?

Inner planets are terrestrial planets outer are jovian planets

What are terrestrial planets and jovian planets?

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

How does the diameter of the terrestrial and jovian planets compare?

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.

Is a terrestrial planet bigger than a Jovian planet?

No. Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets.

Terrestrial and jovian planets?

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

What is the most obvious difference between the terrestrial and the Jovian planets?

The greatest difference is in their size. Gas giants are large but have a very low average density (much of their size includes their atmospheres). From a physical standpoint, terrestrial (rocky) planets have a solid exterior surface. Jovian (gas giant) planets instead exhibit a smooth range of increasing density, and do not have the abrupt change to solidity that terrestrial planets exhibit.

Why are the terrestrial and Jovian planets so different in composition?

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 most obvious difference between the terrestrial and the jovian planets is?

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

Compare and contrast terrestrial and Jovian planets?

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.

Is mercury a terrestrial or a jovian?

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

How do the escape velocities of the jovian planets compare to the terrestrial planets?

The Jovian planets have much higher escape velocities.
