## Questions

Sidebar

• Jupiter's equatorial radius: There's Jupiter's radius, and then on the next line is 11.209 Earths. I stumbled on this, and then realized that what is meant is 11.209 Earth equatorial radii. Without specifying a unit, it seems the natural thing is to think that 11.209 'Earths' (the planet) would fit in this distance, which would imply the diameter. Other options might be 11.209 times that of Earth, or 11.209 Earth's, or simply delete the statistic and let the reader do the calculation. Or is this a convention of some sort?
• Similarly for the polar radius.
• I don't have the same problem for the surface area, volume, or mass, because in each case the entirety is described.Mvsmith (talk) 06:23, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

## Update needed on cloud layer depth

This article currently states: "'The cloud layer is only about 50 km (31 mi) deep"
But new data from Juno reveals that the cloud layer is 3,000 kilometers deep: [1]. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 01:43, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
