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.


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


While terrestrial planets are made of rock and have gases in the atmosphere, jovian planets are made almost entirly of gases. If an atmosphere is made of gases in a planet, then the atmosphere of the planets with more gases will be thicker.


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


Terrestrial and Jovian. Terrestrial planets are rocky and small (like Earth). Jovian planets are large and mainly made of gases (like Jupiter).


Jovian planets have a much stronger gravitational force due to their larger mass.


It's a "terrestrial" planet, because it is rocky with an iron core, like planet Earth. "Terrestrial" means "Earthlike". Jovian planets are mainly made of gases and liquefied gases.


The Jovian planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) are composed of gases and pressurized liquids. Whereas, the four inner terrestrial planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) are composed of rock and iron.


"Jovian" planets are considered to be mainly made up of various gases, and are also known as "gas giants". The Jovian planets are known as "Jovian" from the largest gas giant in the solar system: Jupiter. Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus (Haha, very funny) are all considered Jovian planets."Terrestrial" planets are thought of as rocky. A human being could maybe walk on its surface, in a goodspace suit.Terrestrial planets are planets like Earth. The terrestrial planets in our solar system are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.I know I sound like a book, but so-be-it.


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.


The four inner planets are made of rock . The outer planets are made of various gases and condenced gases. Hydrogen being prominante.


The Jovian Planets have a large percentage of the gases Hydrogen and Helium.


Terrestrial Planet: Also known as a rocky planet, its made from silicate rocks or materials. There are four Terrestrial Planets in The Solar System. Jovian Planet: Also known as a gas giant, they have high levels of methane and made composed of gases, some with huge storms such as the Red Spot on Jupiter.


large planets are called the outer planets or the JOVIAN PLANETS which are made up of gases and viscous liquids... terrestrial planets are the inner planets! inner planets- MERCURY VENUS EARTH MARS outer planets- JUPITER SATURN URANUS NEPTUNE


Jovian Planets are planetsmade up of gases . namely Jupiter , Saturn , uranus and neptune


The Jovian planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) are composed of gases and pressurized liquids. Whereas, the four terrestrial planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) are composed of rock and iron.


The four outer planets have two names, Jovian planets and gaseous planets. Jovian means Jupiter-like, which is made of gases. So Jovian and gaseous planets mean the same.


Jovian planets (gas giants, ice giants) are composed of gas, mainly hydrogen and helium. They have a solid core of rocks and ice about Earth's size, around which is a dense atmosphere of gas, including liquid gases, or even solid hydrogen in the case of Jupiter. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are Jovian planets. Although their slushy outer cores are very hot and dense, Uranus and Neptune are referred to as "ice giants."Terrestrial planets are much smaller, with dense metal cores, a solid crust as a surface, and comparatively thin atmospheres. In the case of Mercury, the atmosphere is blown away by the solar wind, but for Venus is it much more dense than on Earth. The terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.jovian planets are rocky and terrestrial planets are gasy


Neither of them have rings, and they also have impact crates from collisions of the planets with objects primarily made of rock 2nd Answer: Also the Terran (Earthlike) planets are rocky while the Jovian planets are mainly composed of different gases.


They are very large, and consist of mostly gases.


Dependant on how the debris from supernovae is moving, the proportions of certain materials present, and the initial conditions of solar systems forming different combinations of terrestrial and Jovian planets are formed. Terrestrial planets are comprised of heavier particles (ie. of higher relative atomic mass) meaning they have stronger gravity which leads to higher density planets than the gaseous Jovian planets. A Jovian planet can be thought of as a failed star - it has all the elements needed to fuel nuclear fusion, but not enough gravity to attain the nuclear activation energy required. So the Sun started as a large cloud mostly comprising of gases, and terrestrial planets were formed from clouds mostly consisting of heavy solids.


They are alike because they all have some time of gases.


Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are the terrestrial planets. This is because they are composed of rocky substances as opposed to the gases of the outer planets.


Terrestrial planets are rocky and are the inner four planets. Gas giants are made of gases and are the outer four planets.


Terrestrial planets are made of rock, mostly with a molten core, while giant planets are made up of gases.
