#### What is the mass of Ganymede?

1.4819 x 1023 kg
Size, Mass and Orbit: With a mean radius of 2634.1 ± 0.3 kilometers (the equivalent of 0.413 Earths), Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system and is even larger than the planet Mercury. However, with a mass of 1.4819 x 1023 kg (the equivalent of 0.025 Earths), it is only half as massive.

## What planet does Ganymede orbit?

Jupiter
Ganymede completes an orbit around Jupiter about every seven Earth days (7.155). Ganymede orbits the Sun along with Jupiter and its other satellites every 12 Earth years. Ganymede, Io, and Europa are in what is called a resonance – every time Ganymede orbits Jupiter once, Europa orbits twice, and Io orbits four times.
