Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are much larger than earth. Venus (slightly), Mars (by half) andare smaller than earth.
Of the seven other planets that orbit the sun, three are smaller than Earth and four are larger.
Four planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are larger than the Earth. Venus is close, but still smaller.
The inner planets are smaller than the outer planets.
Going out form Earth in order their sizes as compared to Earth are:-Mars - smallerJupiter - largerSaturn - largerUranus - largerNeptune - larger
In our solar system alone, all four gaseous planets are larger than Earth: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Yes. The four inner planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars and smaller than the four outer planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Earth is largest inner planet, and Neptune is the smallest outer planet. Neptune is around 14 times larger in terms of diameter than the Earth. The dwarf planets are all smaller than any of the actual planets.
The four inner, rocky planets - also known as the terrestrial planets. These are; Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. The inner planets are smaller than the four outer gas giant planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Because the four inner planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars) are the four planets closest to the sun. These smaller planets are all inside the asteroid belt. The larger planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune) are outside the asteroid belt and thus called the outer planets.
From the Sun:Mercury is innermost and smallest (about the size of our Moon.)Venus is next and almost exactly the size of the Earth, just a shade smaller.Earth is next and it is - well- the Earth!Mars is the last of the rocky - Earthlike planets and it is smaller than Earth.See a picture comparing the sizes at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:5_Terrestrial_planets_size_comparison.png
That doesn't make any sense. A planet is only a single body in space, not multiple ones.
There are several planets which are larger than the earth. There are actually four in number namely; Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are larger than Earth. Earth is the largest of the four terrestrial or inner rocky planets, but the four outer gas giant planets are all much larger than Earth. The planets in size order: 1. Jupiter 2. Saturn 3. Uranus 4. Neptune 5. Earth 6. Venus 7. Mars 8. Mercury (Pluto is no longer regarded as a planet, so that is why there are only 8 planets listed.)
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.
The four 'gas giants'.. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are all much larger than Earth.
The planet Earth is the largest of the four rocky inner planets; it is smaller than any of the four gas giants.
Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. These are the four smaller inner planets, which have a clear terrain. They are different to the gas planets, which don't have a clear solid surface.
Uranus is about 4 times larger than the Earth
There are the four inner, rocky planets are also known as the terrestrial planets. These are; Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. Then there are the four outer gas giant planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. The inner planets are smaller and have a higher average density. The outer planets are much larger, but have no real surface - just atmosphere that gets thicker as you travel inwards.
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.
The four inner, terrestrial or rocky planets all have similar densities, much higher than the four outer gas giant planets (though the outer planets are much larger and more massive).
No, Neptune has a smaller volume that Uranus, Neptune is the smallest of the four outer planets. Uranus has the lowest mass of the four outer planets though, so its lighter than Neptune but larger in size.
Some are, but the furthest from the sun, Pluto, is also the smallest. The four innermost planets are considerably smaller than the four outermost, but the correlation of distance and size is not perfect. Earth is the largest of the first four planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, even though Earth is number three. Jupiter is the largest of all, even though it is the first of the remaining four; Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Pluto isn't a planet anymore, so you could say that
The Solar System has two major groups of planets - the four inner planets which include Earth, and the four outer planets. Each of these groups shares certain characteristics with one another. Mainly, the outer planets are gas giant - i.e., they are much larger than Earth, and they are made up mainly of gas.
The "inner planets" are the four rocky or "terrestrial" (Earth-like) planets closer to the Sun. The outer planets are the four larger "gas giants" farther from the Sun, beyond the Asteroid Belt. Inner planets : Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars Outer planets : Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune
Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. They are all much smaller than the outer four planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
