Best Answer

The cores of jovian planets are very similar to terrestrial ones. Jovian planets are simply a more evolved form of terrestrial planet contrary to popular perception. Jovian planets often have a lot of hydrogen, helium, methane, and/or volatile ices to make up its atmosphere to the point where oceans of these components cover the terrestrial core and billow the atmosphere to large proportions. Terrestrial planets absorbed less of these components from the leftover solar nebula leaving only the rocky surface and maybe some gas of an atmosphere.
