## How many suns will fit in Jupiter?

According to multiple studies, around 1,000 Jupiters could fit into the Sun. This calculation was done using the volume of the Sun compared to the…

Is Sun the biggest or Jupiter?

Jupiter may indeed be the biggest planet in our Solar System, but is it bigger than our Sun? No, the gas giant pales in comparison to our Sun. Our Sun is 11 times wider than Jupiter. It has a radius of 696.340 km / 432.685 mi and a diameter of 1.39 million km / 864.000 mi.

### What is the ratio of Jupiter and Sun?

diameter area
Earth 107 × 1.27 m 1015 × 0.510 m2
Jupiter 108 × 1.43 m 1017 × 0.641 m2
Sun 109 × 1.39 m 1019 × 0.609 m2

Can you fit 1 million Earths in the sun?

It holds 99.8% of the solar system’s mass and is roughly 109 times the diameter of the Earth — about one million Earths could fit inside the sun.

#### Does Jupiter have 3 suns?

Scientists have found a rare three-star system 685 light years away. Researchers used to think the KELT-4 system, home to a “hot Jupiter” planet called KELT-4Ab, was a binary system — which is much more common. …

Is Jupiter hotter than the Sun?

The temperature in the clouds of Jupiter is about minus 145 degrees Celsius (minus 234 degrees Fahrenheit). The temperature near the planet’s center is much, much hotter. The core temperature may be about 24,000 degrees Celsius (43,000 degrees Fahrenheit). That’s hotter than the surface of the sun!

## Why is Jupiter so much larger than Earth?

Large self-gravity means a large escape velocity, so it is much more difficult for molecules to reach the kinetic energy needed to escape the gravity of Jupiter than that of Earth. Jupiter therefore has a much greater concentration of hydrogen and helium than Earth does.

Which is closer to Earth sun or Jupiter?

Size and Distance With a radius of 43,440.7 miles (69,911 kilometers), Jupiter is 11 times wider than Earth. From an average distance of 484 million miles (778 million kilometers), Jupiter is 5.2 astronomical units away from the Sun. One astronomical unit (abbreviated as AU), is the distance from the Sun to Earth.
