How do inner planets differ?

Inner planets differ from outer planets because they have rocky core (excepting Pluto), and the are much smaller than outer planets, which are bigger and take more time to orbit Sun than inner planets because of their location. Outer planets are farther from the Sun than inner planets.


Compare the inner planets to the outer planets?

The inner planets are a lot closer to the sun than the outer planets and the outer planets takes a lot longer to revolve around the sun and most of the outer planets are called gas giants.


What objects orbit the sun between the inner and outer planets?

Asteroids.


Which planets are closest together-the inner or the outer planets?

The inner plants. The size and distance of the outer planets means they have longer and more spaced out orbits


How are inner planets and gas giants similar?

they orbit the sun and are the first four outer planets


What are inner and outer planets What is the difference?

In our solar system; Inner planets are planets that have an orbit which lies within the asteroid belt. Outer planets are planets which have an orbit which lies outside the orbit of the asteroid belt. The asteroid belt lies between Mars and Jupiter. Therefore the inner planets would be in order away form the sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. The outer planets in the same order are; Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Characteristics of outer planets?

The four outer planets; Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are all much larger than the inner planets. These outer planets have no real surface, they are composed mainly of Hydrogen and helium gas, which gets thicker and thicker until the extreme pressures closer to the core of the planets change the state of the gases. The outer planets are much colder than the inner planets due to their distance from the sun, they take much longer to orbit the sun due to this distance. The outer planets are a lot larger than the inner planets.
