terrestrial are planets that are the inner planets since there are made up of rock. but on the other hand. the outer planets are the gas giants. or the outer planets. they are made up of various gasses.

the inner planets are terrestial and outer planet like Jupiter, Neptune etc are gas planet.

The inner planets are rocky, the outer planets are gas.

The inner planets are close in, the outer planets are further out.

Inner planets are mostly rock and outer planets are mostly gas.

the outer planets move more slower bbecause the orbits are bigger

the inner planets are closest to the sun and the outer planets are farthest from the sun { Answered by a grade 4 student}

The difference between the inner and outer is the four inner are rocky and the four outer are gas giants.

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

the inner planets are small, rocky, and have a solid surfacethe outer planets are large, gaseous, and have no surface

The inner planets are known as "rocky planets" and the outer planets are known as "gas planets" or "gas giants" because they are mostly formed from gasses.

The outer planets have a gas surface, the inner planets have a rocky surface. Another is that the outer planets are bigger than the inner planets. The last major difference is that the inner planets are more denser than the gas giants.

The inner planets are closer together than the outer planets are.

The distances between the inner planets is smaller than the distances between the outer planets.

There is a rather large asteroid belt between Mars (the last inner planet) and Jupiter (the closest outer planet.) Mostly, however, the terminology refers to the vast difference in orbit radius between the inner and outer planets.

The inner planets are generally referred to as all the planets closer to the sun than the asteroid belt, and the outer planets are the ones further away from the sun. There is no specific physical difference besides distance, although most of the outer planets are gas giants, but being a gas giant does not make them an outer planet. Outer planets tend to be made of gas and dust particles, and are usually bigger that the inner planets. The inner planets are warmer, with rocky cores and thinner atmospheres.

There is a wide range of temperatures between the inner planets themselves but in general, the farther away you are from the Sun, the colder it will be. So inner planets, being closer to the Sun, are warmer than the outer planets, which are farther away.

Location, location, location. Inner planets = Mars and inward (towards the sun); outer planets = Jupiter and outward (away from the sun).

The planets revolve in elliptical orbits. The inner planets have orbits 230 million km or less from the Sun. The outer planets have orbits 775 million km or greater.

As the names suggest, the inner planets are closer to the Sun than the outer planets.

The main difference is that the inner planets are smaller and are nearer the sun te outer planets are after the earth starting with Mars and ending with Pluto.

The asteroid belt is between the inner and outer planets, but mostly it is just empty space.

a inner planet is the 4 planets closest to the sun which is Mercury ,Venus ,Earth ,and Mars they all are solid rocky planets but the outer planets are gas giants the outer planets are the 4 planets farthest away from the sun and they are Jupiter,Saturn,Neptune and Uranus

The four inner, rocky planets are also known as the terrestrial planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars), they have a clearly defined terrain (unlike the four outer gas giant planets).

The asteroid belt is in-between the inner and outer planets.
