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


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


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


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.


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


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


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. Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial 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.


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.


Jovian Planets: Gas GiantsThe gas giants, popularly referred to as the Jovian planets, are the planets which are not composed of any solid matter. Technically speaking, the planets which have 10 times more mass than the Earth are classified as the Jovian planets. The examples of Jovian planets in our solar system, include the planet Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. These planets are referred to as the Jovian planets owing to their stark resemblance to the planet Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system. Other than these four planets in our solar system, several other gas giants have been discovered in outer space.Terrestrial Planets: Inner PlanetsTerrestrial planets, also known as the rocky planets or the telluric planets, are those planets which are predominantly composed of silicate rocks. The examples of terrestrial planets in the solar system are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. These planets resemble the planet Earth to a significant extent, and hence they are referred to as 'Earth-like' or 'terrestrial' (derived from the Latin word the Earth - terra). Other than the Earth, and three other terrestrial planets in our solar system, the scientists have identified a number of planets with terrestrial traits in outer space.Jovian Planets Vs Terrestrial PlanetsThat brings us back to the terrestrial planets vs Jovian planets comparison. The most basic difference between Jovian and terrestrial planets is their size. While the Jovian planets are gigantic, the terrestrial planets are considerably small. In fact, the smallest Jovian planet is 10 times larger than the planet Earth, which is the largest terrestrial planet. Even in terms of the mass, Jovian planets score over their terrestrial counterparts. The smallest Jovian planet has 15 times more mass than the Earth. The surface of the Jovian planets is made up of gases, while the surface of the terrestrial planets is made up of solid rock. Similarly, the atmosphere of the terrestrial planets is predominantly made up of nitrogen and carbon dioxide, while the atmosphere of the Jovian planets is made up of hydrogen and helium. As far as the distance from the Sun is concerned, the terrestrial planets are closer to the Sun, and hence are referred to as inner planets, while the Jovian planets are farther, and hence are referred to as the outer planets. Surprisingly, however, the speed at which the Jovian planets rotate is much faster than the terrestrial planets. The density of the terrestrial planets is five times that of water, while the density of the Jovian planets is as much as that of water. Yet another point of difference between the Jovian planets and the terrestrial planets is the number of natural satellites. While the terrestrial planets either have none or a very few (Mercury-0, Venus-0, Earth-1 and Mars-2), the Jovian planets have a large number of them.


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


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.
