There are four Terrestrial planets. The Terrestrial planets in order according to radius size are:

1. Mercury (0.383 km)

2. Mars (0.533 km)

3. Venus (0.950 km)

4. Earth (1.000 km)

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

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

well, terrestrial planets means planets half to twice the size of the Earth so i guess they're Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth

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.

Size, density, composition, and the rate of the rotation are used to place the planets in either Jovian or Terrestrial.

a terrestrial planet is an object in space that resembles Earth in size , density, and in its mainly rocky composition

It is the biggest terrestrial planet, but far smaller than the four jovian planets.

The greatest difference is in their size. Gas giants are large but have a very low average density (much of their size includes their atmospheres). From a physical standpoint, terrestrial (rocky) planets have a solid exterior surface. Jovian (gas giant) planets instead exhibit a smooth range of increasing density, and do not have the abrupt change to solidity that terrestrial planets exhibit.

There are two main types of planets because the two categories separate the planets into more specific groups. 1. Terrestrial planets have a rocky surface and are inside of the asteroid belt that separates the Terrestrial planets from the Gas Giants The Terrestrial planets are: (in order of distance to the sun (close to far) Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. 2. Gas Giants are mostly made up of gasses and are very large in size Gas Giants are: (in order of distance to the sun (close to far) Jupiter, Saturn, 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.

They are all close to the sunThey are all similar in size and composotion to the EarthThey are the first three planetshope this helps

The moon or luna is classified as a terrestrial planet based on its composition and size. Other terrestrial planets are: Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.

Mercury is the smallest planet. Followed by size. Mars, Venus and Earth

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 Moon is large compared to Earth. Almost all other moons are much smaller relative to the planets they orbit.

It's similar in size, mass and composition. It is also a similar distance from the sun and both are classed as rocky inner planets (terrestrial planets).

THEY ARE SMALL AND HAVE ROCKY SURFACESThey have a rocky surface, also known as terrestrial planets.They are rocky in their composition.They are roughly similar in size and density, and are all closer to the sun than the gas planets.

Earth is the biggest of the terrestrial or rocky planets, but smaller than any of the gas giants.

The four inner planets in order of size from SMALLEST to LARGEST are Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Earth.

Mercury (smallest), Mars, Venus, Earth, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter (largest).

Earth is the largest "terrestrial planet" and 5th largest major planet in the solar system.It is larger than Mercury, Mars, and Venus.Planets in order of size, smallest to largest :MercuryMarsVenusEarthNeptuneUranusSaturnJupiter(see related link)

There is no reason why they should be the same size. When the planets formed in the solar disk, lighter elements collected at the outer rim and formed the gas giants. Heavier material collected closer to the Sun and formed the terrestrial planets. Their size is determined by the ratio of the various elements that happened to make up the solar disk.

Putting the planets in order by size is:JupiterSaturnNeptuneUranusEarthVenusMarsMercury
