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.

Terrestrial are the planets closest to the sun - Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. Gaseous are the rest, up to Uranus.

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 rocky and the "gas giant planets" are gaseous.

All inner planets have gasses(Except mercury). The outer planets are all gaseous.

Mercury is one of the four inner terrestrial planets.

Jupiter is the first of the gaseous (Jovian) planets and Mars is the last terrestrial one.

Terrestrial planets and moons of both gaseous and terrestrial planets. Don't forget Dwarf planets and the asteroid belt.

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 iron cores and the gaseous planets are bigger and are made up of many gases that come together so if u could stand on one of these planets u would sink in goo the gaseous planets also have more gravity

The sun is made up of 74% hydrogen and 24% helium. It is also the center of the universe and the planets orbit around it. Those planets include terrestrial planets and gaseous planets. Terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. They are also the planets closest to the sun. Gaseous planets, or "Gas Giants" include Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

The Earth is terrestrial rather than gaseous. There are several planets in the solar system that are considered to be gaseous but the Earth and Mars and even Pluto are terrestrial.

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

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

Terrestrial. Terrestrial planets are rocky, like Earth (terra=earth), and jovian planets are gaseous, like Jupiter (jove=jupiter).

terrestrial planets are denser and smaller while thejovial planets are gaseous and much larger.

Some terrestrial planets are mars mercury Venus and earth gaseous planets Jupiter Saturn Uranus and Neptune.

There are four terrestrial planets in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. There are also four gaseous planets in our solar system: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

The inner planets are called terrestrial because they are Earthlike: small and rocky planets as opposed to the outer planets which are giant gaseous planets,The word terrestrial comes from the Latin word terra, meaning Erth.

Terestrial planets have land, you can walk on them. But gaseous planets, if you step on them you would fall into a bunch of burning gas.

Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are terrestrial Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are gaseous

It has to be mainly solid, not gaseous. The 4 inner planets are like that.

Compared to the gaseous planets in our solar system: yes.
