Jovian planets of course

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

Yes Jovian planets rotate faster than terrestrial planets. This is because they have more mass relative to their radius and have a more angular momentum.

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

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

Jovian planets have a much stronger gravitational force due to their larger mass.

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

hydrogen methane silicate minteral or ammonia iceSilicate Minerals are more abundant on terrestrial planets than on Jovian planets.

The Jovian planets rotate more rapidly than Earth

Terrestrial planets have proportionately more silicate materials than Jovian ones.

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

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.

Jovian planets do not have a solid surface, therefore their atmospheres are thick all the say to where their surface would be. Their atmospheres have more gasses than those surrounding terrestrial planets.

That is a little hard to anwer. Terrestrial planets are by far more dense than the outer parts of the gas giants (Jovian planets) BUT . . . far, far, far down inside the Jovian planets is found a tremendous pressure which squeezes the matter there into a very dense state - more dense than Earth.

Jupiter is a Jovian Plant. The adjective Jovian has come to mean anything associated with Jupiter; and by extension, a Jupiter-like planet. The Jovian planets are the gas giants: Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune. Many, if not most, of the exoplanets discovered to date appear to be Jovian. By contrast, terrestrial, aka telluric, aka rocky planets differ significantly from the gas giant/Jovian planets in that they are composed primarily of metals and silicate rocks (hence "rocky" planets) like Earth, aka Terra (from which we get the word terrestrial) and are "Earth-like" as opposed to "jupiter-like"/Jovian. The terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. All the dwarf planets are also more terrestrial than jovian.

The cores of jovian planets are very similar to terrestrial ones. Jovian planets are simply a more evolved form of terrestrial planet contrary to popular perception. Jovian planets often have a lot of hydrogen, helium, methane, and/or volatile ices to make up its atmosphere to the point where oceans of these components cover the terrestrial core and billow the atmosphere to large proportions. Terrestrial planets absorbed less of these components from the leftover solar nebula leaving only the rocky surface and maybe some gas of an atmosphere.

Yes, the large and more massive outer planets are made mainly from Hydrogen and Helium. They are less dense than the smaller terrestrial planets.

While terrestrial planets are made of rock and have gases in the atmosphere, jovian planets are made almost entirly of gases. If an atmosphere is made of gases in a planet, then the atmosphere of the planets with more gases will be thicker.

Yes they are, a number of times larger.

Both of them have the same mass which is 13MJ Edit : As far as I know brown dwarfs have much more mass than Jupiter, and that's the biggest of the Jovian planets.

The Jovian planets are a more evolved type of planet. Since they are farther from the Sun, they are less affected by the Sun and undergo less change.

Jovian planets (gas giants, ice giants) are composed of gas, mainly hydrogen and helium. They have a solid core of rocks and ice about Earth's size, around which is a dense atmosphere of gas, including liquid gases, or even solid hydrogen in the case of Jupiter. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are Jovian planets. Although their slushy outer cores are very hot and dense, Uranus and Neptune are referred to as "ice giants."Terrestrial planets are much smaller, with dense metal cores, a solid crust as a surface, and comparatively thin atmospheres. In the case of Mercury, the atmosphere is blown away by the solar wind, but for Venus is it much more dense than on Earth. The terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.jovian planets are rocky and terrestrial planets are gasy

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

The inner, or terrestrial planets are more dense than the outer planets/gas giants/jovian planets. Through a process of differentiation we find inner planets to typically consist of a molten iron core and a less dense silicate crust.
