What is the difference between terrestrial planets and gas planets?

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.

Are the planets the same size?

No two planets within our solar system have the same exact size. However, Earth and Venus are quite close - their diameters differ by only 652km.

What is the relationship between gas giants and terrestrial planets regarding astronomical units?

All of the terrestrial planets are within 1.52 AU of the Sun. All of the gas giants are greater then 5 AU of the sun. The relationship is that most of the terrestrial planets are very close to the sun while gas giants are much further away.

Why are there two main types of planets?

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.

How does the melting and vaporization point of materials determine the composition of the planets?

Durable solids that are very hard to melt and vaporize form close to the Sun, making terrestrial planets.

What do the four terrestrial planets all have in common?

They are small, but dense (compared with the gas giant planets), have solid surfaces, and for some reason they are all fairly close to the Sun.

What are similarities in terrestrial planets?

Does earth is rocky or gas giant?

Earth is in fact not a gas giant but a terrestrial planet or a inner planet the reason why it is called that is because it is one of the four planets that are close to the sun

Why the inner planets are all terrestrial?

It is my understanding that, due to their close proximity to the Sun, and the corresponding higher temperatures, lighter gases (mainly hydrogen and helium) evaporated off into space.

Why are the gas giants far away from the sun and the terrestrial planets close?

They are so large travelling closer to the sun they would have an increased velocity losing there gas to solar winds ect.

Why is Venus the solar system's brightest planet?

Venus appears as the brightest planet in the sky because it is fairly close to Earth and close to the sun, which gives it plenty of light to reflect. It is also larger and lighter in color than the other terrestrial planets we see in the sky.
