    Terrestrial planets are those made out of rock or metal, a sold compounds. They are very dense, spin slowly, solid surfaces, don’t have rings, with less satellites. The terrestrial planets in our solar system include: Earth, Mercury, Venus and Mars.

    While Jovian planets are made out of gas, usually hydrogen and helium. They are sort of the opposite or terrestrial planets and have low densities, spin faster, have deep atmospheres, many rings and satellites. The Jovian planets in our solar system include: Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune.

    It’s also important to note that Jovians do still have a rocky core way way down at the center, it’s just negligible compared to the mass of gases they hold.
