  • Distance from the sun is 778,500,00 km

  • Distance from the earth

    • Closest- 628,743,036

    • Farthest- 928,081,020


Planet measurements
Planet Measurements

  • Mass- 1.898x1027 kg

  • Volume- 1,431,281,810,739,360 km3

  • Density- 1.33 g/cm3

  • Jupiter would sink because its density is more than 1

  • Gravity- 24.79 m/s2


Orbit and rotation
Orbit and Rotation

  • It takes 11.86 years and 4,332 days to orbit the sun

  • It takes every 9.9 hours to rotate on its axis


Atmosphere
Atmosphere

  • Jupiter has a thick atmosphere made of helium and hydrogen. Its atmosphere is a great red spot


Temperature
Temperature

  • It ranges from about – 190°F or -128°C for a visible surface to 9°F at lower cloud level some regions reach 40°F.

  • Jupiter is a lot colder than Earth and Florida


Composition appearance
Composition/ Appearance

  • Jupiter is a gas giant

  • Jupiter’s internal composition is liquid hydrogen, metal elements

  • Jupiter is covered with thick red brown, yellow and white clouds. The atmosphere is red and is large


Weather
Weather

  • The weather is large. Storms that grow to cover thousands of km within hours. Wind whipping the clouds at 360 kph and storms that last for hundreds of years


Rings
Rings

  • Discovered by NASH’s voyager 1 in 1980. They do not reflect a lot of sunlight they receive. There are 3 rings of Jupiter.

    • Halo ring- faint wide ring

    • Main ring- thin ring

    • Gossamer ring- faint wide ring


Moons
Moons

  • There are 63 moons- they were discovered from 1610-2011 there are 67 including the 4 large moons known as the Galilean satellites


Water
Water

  • Yes, there is water, small amounts. It is in the form of water vapor in the cloud tops


What would happen to a human on jupiter
What would happen to a human on Jupiter?

  • You would be crushed my Jupiter’s gravity, poisoned by the atmosphere and the surface would absorb you


Interesting fact
Interesting Fact

  • Jupiter only takes 10 hours to complete to a full rotation on its axis. The planet has flattened out because it spins so fast
