What planets are called giants?

Jupiter and Saturn - fifth and sixth of the planet's sun - are considered giants of the solar system. The mass of Jupiter is twice as large as the mass of the rest of the planets taken together, and 1300 times greater than the mass of the Earth. Saturn is slightly smaller. Unlike internal planets, both giants are completely composed of gases, and only the core in them is solid. But they are not likewise on the round clouds of gas. Under the influence of enormous gravity, gas is compressed to a liquid and even a solid state.
