The Asteroid Belt is a demarcation between the gas giants and terrestrial type planets.

Terrestrial planets are rocky and are the inner four planets. Gas giants are made of gases and are the outer four planets.

Terrestrial planets are solid and gaseous planets are made of gas. Gaseous planets are huge and terrestrial planets are small. Gas giants are far from the sun and terrestrial planets are close to the sun.

Gas giants are made up of gas however terrestrial planets arent and gas giants are huge

The terrestrial planets are closer to the sun than gas planets they are also smaller than gas planets gas planets have no surface they are just made out of different gases and the terrestrial are made out of minerals with a surface and have rocky surfaces.

Terrestrial planets are made up of rock and ice, while gaseous planets are made up of (who would have thought?) gas.

Gas giants are big and made of gas whereas terrestrial planets are smaller and are made of rock.

no, these are the gas giants, or four outer gas planets. The terrestrial planets are the four inner planets, which are much smaller.

No. It is a gas giant. Terrestrial planets are planets that are mainly made of land.

All terrestrial planets are able to maintain life, but the gas giants cannot.

Terrestrial planets have terra firma, a.k.a. hard ground. The gas giants are giant balls of gas.

The Terrestrial Planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. The Gas Giants are Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune.

The terrestrial planets are small in size and mass, they are rocky, solid and dense, all four terrestrial planets have 3 moons between them. They are warm and close to the sun. Terrestrial planets USUALLY have thin atmosphere. The Gas Giants are huge in size, have rings made from dust, debris, ice, rock. They very cold (not close to the sun at all) and light (made from gas.) They have several moons between them (167, I think) and lastly Gas Giants usually have thick and deep atmosphere.

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

They are both planets and have a core

A terrestrial planet, Gas giant planets are made of gas....

The terrestrial planets are; Mercury Venus, Earth, Marswhile the gas planets are; Jupiter Saturn uranus and neptune hope that helps u!!

Bigger planets are more likely to be gas giants while smaller ones are more likely to be terrestrial. This of course is not the answer to your question which is, of all planets that may exist, is there a greater likelyhood of there being terrestrial planets or gas giants?

All of the terrestrial planets are within 1.52 AU of the Sun. All of the gas giants are greater then 5 AU of the sun. The relationship is that most of the terrestrial planets are very close to the sun while gas giants are much further away.

A terrestrial planet is made of rock, in which there is life on. A gaseous planet is made of gas, in which there is no life on.

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.

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

The inner planets are called terrestrial planets because they consist of a solid surface, unlike the gas giants. The terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.

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.
