Below is a list of planetary properties. If you were to compare the numericalvalue of each property for Jupiterand Earth, which planet would have thelargervalue for each property?RadiusJupiterCheck

The correct answer is:Radius– Jupiter,Mass– Jupiter,Average Density– Earth,Distance from the Sun– Jupiter,Orbital Period– Jupiter,Rotation Period– Earth,"Surface" Temperature(where Jupiter's surface is definedto be the top of its upper atmosphere) – Earth,Atmosphere DensityJupiter

Question11How does the mass of Jupiter compare with the masses of all the otherplanets in the Solar System?Select one:Correct1.00 points out of1.00Flag questionCorrectMarks for this submission: 1.00/1.00. Accounting for previous tries, this gives0.90/1.00.b. It is approximately 2.5 times as massive as all the other planetscombined.c. It is almost as massive as Saturn.d. It is slightly more massive than Earth.e. It is about a tenth the mass of the Sun.Check
Question13Listed below are the different layers of Jupiter and Saturn. Rank the layersin terms of their distances from each planet's center, where 1 is the smallestdistance from each planet's center and 5 is the largest distance from eachplanet's center .Correct0.90 points out of1.00Flag questionDistance from the SunSaturnOrbital PeriodSaturnRotation PeriodEarth"Surface" Temperature(where Saturn's surface is definedto be the top of its upper atmosphere)EarthAtmosphere DensitySaturnThe correct answer is:Radius– Saturn,Mass– Saturn,Average Density– Earth,Distance from the Sun– Saturn,Orbital Period– Saturn,Rotation Period– Earth,"Surface" Temperature(where Saturn's surface is definedto be the top of its upper atmosphere) – Earth,Atmosphere DensitySaturnCorrectMarks for this submission: 1.00/1.00.Upper AtmosphereLayer5 (i.e. the largest Distance from the Center)Core1 (i.e. the smallest Distance from the Center)Liquid Hydrogen Layer3Metallic Hydrogen Layer2Gaseous HydrogenLayer4Check
