    metals, rock, and hydrogen compounds. Jupiter, on the other hand is made almost entirely of hydrogen and helium 4. Because of its large size, Jupiter loses heat very slowly. The planet is still slowly contracting. Contraction converts gravitational energy into thermal energy. Neptune also uses contraction as a way of generating internal heat. Saturn, on the other hand, has liquid helium raining into its interior and it has a less extreme core temperature than Jupiter. 6. Different types of…

    Jupiter is the fifth planet out from the sun, and is the largest planet in our solar system. In addition, the planet is primarily made of gases, therefore it considered a “gas giant”. The 142,984 km planet’s atmosphere is made mostly of hydrogen and helium gas. Therefore, there is no solid ground on Jupiter, so the surface is considered the point where the atmospheric pressure is equal to that of Earth.
