Physical (mass, density, etc.)
Terrestrial vs. Jovian
Orbital Period (Earth Years)
Orbital Period (Ea
1. What are the similarities and differences between the terrestrial and Jovian
planets? Use orbital characteristics (semi-major axis, eccentricity, inclination) and
physical characteristics (mass, radius, density, composition)
1. What is the EM Spectrum made up of?
Electromagnetic (EM) Radiation; radiation is energy that travels and spreads out as it
2. List the seven types of radiation.
Radio waves, microwaves, infrared waves, visible light, ultraviolet (UV) rays, X-rays
