In our solar system, the asteroid belt lies between the two types of planets. Whether this is due to some overarching influence or merely coincidental cannot be determined at the present time.

Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are small rocky, terrestrial planets.

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are larger, predominantly gaseous planets.

Beyond Neptune are many small plutoids and other icy bodies, some of which approach the size of the terrestrial planets. Their gaseous composition, however, means that they would lose much of their mass if they were closer to the Sun.

The asteroid belt separates the two groups of planets.(Which are Terrestrial,rocky, and Jovian,gas.)


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


Yes, Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets.



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 Terrestrial planets are the four closest and th Jovian planets are the farthestjoivoin


No, there is more hydrogen on the Jovian planets then the terrestrial ones.


The diameter of a terrestrial and jovian planets are comparable in the sense that the objects orbiting on a terrestrial level are often much bigger than those of jovian planets.


The Terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. The Jovian planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.


Inner planets are terrestrial planets outer are jovian planets


No. Terrestrial planets are much denser than Jovian planets.


No. Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets.


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


While the terrestrial planets are mostly rocky with metallic cores, the Jovian planets are huge balls of gas. The Jovian Planets are also much larger than the terrestrial ones.


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.


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


Jovian planets are more massive and lower in average density. Terrestrial planets are smaller and higher in average density.


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


Terrestrial planets are much smaller with rocky cores whereas Jovian planets are much larger and are made up of mostly gases.


Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are not "Jovian planets". They are called "terrestrial planets". The Jovian planets are the bigger "gas giant" planets.



Terrestrial Planets are more dense than Jovian planets because terrestrial planets are mainly made of solids such as rock and metal, whilst Jovian planets are mainly made of gasses, and the density of solids is much higher than that of gases


The Terrestrial planets have a higher density. Their structure includes a large percentage of rock, while the Jovian planets are composed mostly of gas.
