### What is Jupiter's Rotation?

• A.

9 hours and 55 minutes

• B.

24 hours

• C.

9 hours

• D.

23 hours and 54 minutes

A. 9 hours and 55 minutes
Explanation
Jupiter's rotation refers to the time it takes for the planet to complete one full rotation on its axis. The correct answer of 9 hours and 55 minutes indicates that Jupiter rotates at a relatively fast rate compared to Earth's 24-hour rotation. This rapid rotation contributes to Jupiter's distinct flattened shape and the formation of its bands and storms, such as the famous Great Red Spot.

### One orbit around the sun for Jupiter is ___________ days long.

• A.

4444.44

• B.

4332.95

• C.

• D.

4332.59

• E.

### How much more mass does Jupiter have than Earth?

• A.

713 times

• B.

317 times

• C.

300 times

• D.

371 times

B. 317 times
Explanation
Jupiter has 317 times more mass than Earth. This means that Jupiter is significantly larger and more massive than Earth. The comparison of mass between the two planets highlights the vast difference in size and gravitational pull.

### What is the Atnosphere made up of?

• A.

Hydrogen

• B.

Helium

• C.

Methane

• D.

Oxegen

• E.

A, b, & c

E. A, b, & c
Explanation
The atmosphere is made up of a combination of hydrogen, helium, methane, and oxygen. These gases are present in varying amounts and play important roles in the composition and functioning of the Earth's atmosphere. Hydrogen and helium are lighter gases that are found in the upper layers of the atmosphere, while methane and oxygen are present in smaller quantities but still contribute to the overall composition. The presence of these gases helps create the atmospheric conditions necessary for life on Earth.

### How many moons does Jupiter have?

• A.

At least 28

• B.

At least 105

• C.

At least 18

• D.

At least 62

• E.

At least 75

D. At least 62
Explanation
Jupiter has at least 62 moons. This is known because scientists have discovered and confirmed the existence of 79 moons orbiting Jupiter. Therefore, the statement "at least 62" is correct as it implies that there are more than 62 moons, but the exact number is uncertain.

### How many miles is Jupiter away from the Sun?

• A.

777 million miles

• B.

687 million miles

• C.

1318 million miles

• D.

483 million miles

D. 483 million miles
Explanation
Jupiter is approximately 483 million miles away from the Sun. This distance is based on astronomical measurements and calculations.

### Jupiter is an Inner planet.

• A.

True.

• B.

False , because, it is after the astroied belt.

B. False , because, it is after the astroied belt.
Explanation
The given answer is correct because Jupiter is not an inner planet. Inner planets are those that are located closer to the Sun, such as Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. Jupiter, on the other hand, is a gas giant and is located beyond the asteroid belt, making it an outer planet.

### What is Jupiter diameter?

• A.

88,846 miles

• B.

54,378 miles

• C.

49,232 miles

• D.

594,332 miles

A. 88,846 miles
Explanation
Jupiter's diameter is 88,846 miles. This means that if you were to draw a straight line from one side of Jupiter to the other, it would measure 88,846 miles in length.

### What is Jupiter's core made out of, gas, liqud, or solid?

• A.

Gas

• B.

Liqud

• C.

Solid

C. Solid
Explanation
Jupiter's core is made out of solid material. This is supported by scientific studies and observations that suggest the presence of a dense, rocky core beneath the gas and liquid layers of the planet. The intense pressure and temperature at Jupiter's core are believed to compress the materials into a solid state.
