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 size. The gaseous Jovian planets are far larger than the inner terrestrial planets.


Terrestrial planets are made of rock, mostly with a molten core, while giant planets are made up of gases.


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


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.

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 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.


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

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.


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.


Another name for the terrestrial planets is the inner planets. There are four terrestrial planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.


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.


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


Yes, Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets.


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 inner planets are known as terrestrial planets because they are rocky like earth


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


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


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.


Terrestrial planets not landed on - Venus.


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


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.
