    How do the average densities of Jupiter and Saturn compare to that of Earth? What is the size of Jupiter's core and Saturn's core compared to the size of the Earth? How do the magnetic fields of Jupiter and Saturn compare to that of Earth?

    Thanks!

    hi dear,

    The average density of Jupiter is about 0.24 times that of the Earth (meaning that the Earth is about 4 times denser), while the average density of Saturn is about 0.125 times that of the Earth (meaning that the Earth is about 8 times denser).

    Not much is known about the cores of Jupiter and Saturn since they are heavily covered by fluids, but the most widely accepted researches show that the cores of Jupiter and Saturn are each about same size as the Earth.

    Jupiter's magnetic field is about 14 times as strong as the Earth's, while Saturn's is only slightly weaker than that of the Earth.

    hope you find this helpful, :)!
