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.

In order from the Sun these planets are: Mercury, Venus Earth and Mars. Yes, they are called "terrestrial planets" and also the "Inner Planets".

The terrestrial planets in our solar system are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. There are many more terrestrial planets orbiting stars other than the sun.

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

They are called the terrestrial planets because they are similar to Earth (in fact one of them is Earth.

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

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.

Of the four inner terrestrial planets, Mars is the furthest from the sun. This is the outermost of the four inner planets.

The jovian planets have no solid ground just compressed gases the terrestrial planets have solid ground. The Jovian planets are named gas giants because they are farther then the sun and are not solid and the terrestrial planets are closer to the sun and do not have as much gases.

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 terrestrial planets were formed from the solid matter that formed and orbited closer to the sun. The light gases orbited further from the sun.

The terrestrial planets are Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury which are closer to the sun compared to the outer planets. The feature that they share is a rocky surface.

"Terrestrial" planets are the inner most (to the sun) and rocky planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are terrestrial planets, and the last four planets are gas giants. The word "terrestrial" comes from the Latin "terra" meaning "earth" or "dirt".

There are for terrestrial planets which are also the planets nearest to the sun. The four terrestrial planets are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. The least dense planet among the four is Mars.

The gas giants don't have a solid surface like that found on the terrestrial planets. They are also a lot bigger, are further away from the sun and a lot colder because of this. They take a longer time period to orbit the sun.

The 4 Planets closet to the sun are Mercury, Venus, Earth, & Mars. the inner or terrestrial planets

The old Latin word for Earth is 'Terra'. A word meaning 'like Terra' is 'Terrestrial'.So, it follows that 'terrestrial planets' are planets like Terra (Earth) That means they are rocky and closer to the Sun than the gas giant planets.The 4 terrestrial planets, starting with the one nearest the Sun are:Mercury, the closest to the SunVenus, the hottestEarth, the one supporting lifeMars, the red one with channels.

Terrestrial planets have terra firma, a.k.a. hard ground. The gas giants are giant balls of gas.

The main objects in our solar system are the sun,the terrestrial planets,And the gas giants

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.

Yes because if they were the same they wouldn't have different names

PLANETS in the solar system are either terrestrial ones or gas giant ones. The sun is not a planet. It is a star.

They are both composed of planets that are orbiting baround the sun qand both classifications of planets.

Mercury is one of the four inner terrestrial planets, or rocky planets. It is the smallest of the four and closest to the sun. It is also the smallest of all eight planets.

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.
