Which word or phrase
describes the outer planets

Answers

Well... the ones i would pick would be gaseous, low density, and slow rotation.

Explanation:

The outer planets are all made up of gas and have lower densities than the rocky planets like Earth or Mars and also, the rocky planets have a faster rotation than the outer planets.

solid rocky dense

Explanation:

Explanation:

Astronomers have divided the eight planets of our solar system into the inner planets and the outer planets. The 4 inner planets are the closest to the Sun, and the outer planets are the other four – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. The outer planets are also called the Jovian planets or gas giants.

Complete Question:

Which words or phrases describe the outer planets? Check all that apply.

1. rocky

2. gaseous

3. few moons

4. low density

5. slow rotation

The outer planets of our Solar System are primarily composed of gases, dust, being bigger in size but have lower density as compared to the inner planets.

Explanation:

According to the observation and data received by the the astronomical entities worldwide, it's concluded that the outer planets of our Solar System; Jupitor, Satern, Uranus and Neptune.

These planets are also termed as Jovian planets or Gas Giants as they are primarily made of gases and dust. However, their inner core is made of solid heavy metals. Jupitor is the largest among all of them, having 63 so far identified moons. Its atmosphere is stormy.

Talking about the density, since these planets are made of dust particles and gases, they are of lower density. Uranus has the smallest mass inspite of being the bigger planets of the Solar System. This is because these planets have nothing or nearly nothing solid.

2. gaseous

4. low density

Tried it on edge!!!

2. gaseous

4. low density

Explanation:

The outer planets are the four planets in the outer part of the Solar System. They are much larger than the inner planets. These planets are mostly made out of gasses, such as hydrogen, helium, methane, and so they have lower density than the inner planets which are mostly made of metals. Since these planets are made out of gases, and their temperatures are very low, they have gasses that are in liquid form. They are not completely made out of gasses though, but instead they have some rocky parts in their core, with Neptune and Uranus having larger portion of rocks than Saturn and Jupiter.

Explanation:

I took the test :D

The outer planets are called the jovian planets, meaning huge gas giant. These planets in order are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
