In the case of our Solar System:* The terrestrial planets are closer to the Sun.
* The gas giants are much larger than the terrestrial planets.
* The gas giants don't have a surface on which you can stand.
A related fact is that gas giants have a much lower average density.
Terrestial and Jovian Planets
Earth us a terrestrial planet. Jovian planets are gas giants with no solid surface.
The criteria used to distinguish between the Jovian and terrestrial planets are size, density, com­­posi­tion, and rate of rotation.
The size. The gaseous Jovian planets are far larger than the inner terrestrial planets.
The planets jupiter, saturn, uranus and neptune are not terrestial planets because they are made of gas and they are called jovian/giant planets.
The cores of all four Jovian planets are made of rock, metal, and gasses. The difference between the planets are the layers that surround the cores.
The gas giants ("Jovian planets") are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. Unlike the terrestrial planets, these planets:Are quite a bit largerConsist mainly of gasDon't have a surface on which you might standContain more hydrogen and helium, and less of the heavier elementsHave a lower density
There are 7 main classification of Planets. They are classified into the following groups; * Inferior Planets * Superior Planets * Inner Planets * Outer Planets * Terrestial Planets, * Jovian Planets * Gas Giants
That's because they are beyond the asteroid belt which means they are already far from the sun, unlike the inner planets (also known as terrestial planets).
Pluto, for example, did not fall into the jovian planets catergory or the terrestial planets. it is also too small for a palnet, and too far from the sun.
the terrestrial planets are made of rocky substances, whereas the jovian planets are mostly gas and liquid, although Jupiter is likely to have a solid hydrogen core.
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 of course
Jovian planets are all gas giants. They have no solid surface and are just made of gas. They are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are all terrestrial planets meaning they have solid surfaces.
Jovian Planets do not have a solid surface to stand on.
Inner planets are terrestrial planets outer are jovian planets
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.
Yes, all the Jovian planets have moons.
Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are not "Jovian planets". They are called "terrestrial planets". The Jovian planets are the bigger "gas giant" planets.
Jovian planets are: -gaseous -farthest planets from the sun -largest planets
It was reclassified as a dwarf planet.
The jovian planets have no solid ground just compressed gases the terrestrial planets have solid ground. The Jovian planets are named gas giants because they are farther then the sun and are not solid and the terrestrial planets are closer to the sun and do not have as much gases.
The Jovian planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. They share many characteristics including their location outside of the asteroid belt (between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter).
the Jovian planets are all made of gas
