The Moons density is 3,346.4 kg/m3 The Earths density is 5,515 kg/m3 So the Earth is denser than the Moon

The moons average radius in miles is 1079 miles.

the earths moon is one of the largest and earths moon is made of solid rock where as other moons are made of ice

1,738 kilometers (1,080 miles)

There half the size of our moons. Some are a little less.

Mercury's radius (at the equator) = 2440km or 0.3825 x Earths Venus' radius = 6052km or 0.9488 x Earths Earth's radius = 6378km Mars' radius = 3397km or 0.5323 x Earths Jupiter's radius = 71,492km or 11.21 x Earths Saturn's radius = 60,267km or 9.45 x Earths Uranus' radius = 25,557km or 4.01 x Earths Neptune's radius = 24,766km or 3.88 x Earths

Charon is smaller than the earths moon. It's radius is around 600km, while the Earths moons radius is around 1736km.

The Moon has 1/6th the pull of Earth's gravity.

Generally gravity of other planets, moons, ext is compared relatively to Earth's (with Earth's being 1).

It will decrease not by much though it is not noticeable compared to the earths radius

the Luna (Earths moon) has no moons.

Yes as Pluto is the smallest and the last planet in the solar system, it is smaller then the earths moons.

The moons average radius in miles is 1079 miles.

It depends on how you describe the size; you can say volume, mass, surface area, circumference or radius. A measure of volume condiders three dimensions, and a radius one dimension, so the volume will go up by a factor of eight when you double the radius. If we just use radius, then the Moons mean radius is 1737 km (0.273 of Earths), the Earth is 6378 km and the suns radius is around 695500 km or 109 times that of Earths. When considering volumes though, the Suns volume is 1.3 million times that of the Earths.
