Neptune is the gas giant farthest from the sun. Neptune
Yes. The sun is a giant ball of superheated hydrogen and helium.
No. That would be Jupiter.
They are each very large spheres comprised chiefly of gasses, mostly hydrogen and helium. The primary difference is that stars are sufficiently large to undergo nuclear ign…ition. Jupiter (our largest gas giant) would need to be about 20 times bigger for that to happen.
Niether. The sun is a star, not a planet.
Neptune is the furthest gas giant from the Sun, although it is usually referred to as an ice giant.
HD-209458-B this gas giant orbit at distance 6.5 milliom KM away for the star !
PLANETS in the solar system are either terrestrial ones or gasgiant ones. The sun is not a planet. It is a star.
No, gas giant is for planets. The sun is a star.
The order is: Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus. Added: Actually, in order from the sun............... Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Jupiter's average distance from sun in km = 778,412,010 Saturn's average distance from sun in km = 1,426,725,400 Uranus' average distance from sun in km = 2,870,972,…200 Neptune average distance from sun in km = 4,498,252,900
A gas giant is similar in composition to the Sun. The Sun is much bigger than the gas giants and it is a star not a planet, of course.
Yes it is. outer planets are called Gas giants, while inner planets are called Terrestrial planets. Pluto would be the answer, but its so small that its basically not a planet….
Neither. The terms "rocky" and "gas giant" apply to planets. Thssun is a star, not a planet. Stars are similar in composition togas giants.
