No. It take Venus 224 days to orbit the sun and it takes Mercury 88 days.


The two closer to the sun than the earth, mercury and Venus. The further you go out from the sun, the longer it takes to orbit it.


Mercury and Venus take less time to orbit the Sun than the Earth does. ummm...if you need 5 then...earth, venus, mercury, mars and jupiter


Saturn takes longer than Venus to orbit the Sun because its orbit is much larger, so there is more distance to travel to complete one revolution. In addition, Saturn moves slower along its orbit than Venus does along its own orbit.


Mars takes longer to orbit Sun than Mercury because it is farther away from the sun, so it travels a longer distance.




Mercury with 88 daysVenus with 224.7 days


All of the planets inside of Saturns orbit.Thus Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Jupiter


Mercury does not orbit the earth - ever!


Earth takes a lot longer to make one complete order around the sun than Mercury does. The time required for Mercury to make one orbit is equal to 88 Earth days (whereas one orbit for Earth is about 365 Earth days).


its farther away then mercury is therefore making mercury the fastest planet and venus the second fastest planet because it has to orbit a full time.and its also farther away from the sun making it go slower around farther away.


Saturn. This is untrue. Both Mercury and Venus have shorter orbits and therefore take less time to orbit the Sun, because they are the two planets closer to the Sun then Earth. Saturn is further from the Sun and takes much longer to orbit it.


Planets closer to the sun than Earth orbit the sun in less than one year (Mercury and Venus), while planets further out from the sun than Earth take longer than a year (Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune). The further out you go, the longer it takes to orbit the sun.


It takes 224.7 earth days for Venus to orbit the sun.


Earth does not orbit other planets; it orbits the sun. It's only coincidental that in the process it completely encircles Mercury and Venus.


Mercury does not orbit the Earth, it orbits the Sun.


Do you mean how long does it take Mercury to orbit the sun ? 87.969 days


Well, basically different planets take longer to orbit the Sun. For example, Jupiter takes longer to orbit than earth, so Jupiter has a longer year. On Venus, a day lasts longer than a year as it takes longer to spin on its axis that to orbit the sun.


Yes. Mars takes 686 Earth days to orbit around the Sun, while Mercury only takes 88 days.


It takes Mercury 88 days to orbit the sun.


For Mercury it takes 88 Earth days to orbit the sun, but this is not even one day on Mercury. For Venus it takes 224.7 Earth days to orbit the sun. But I do not no how long it takes other planets to orbit the sun, sorry I couldn't be more help.


It takes Venus 224.7 Earth days to orbit the Sun.


It takes Venus about 224.7 "Earth days" to complete one orbit.


Venus orbits the Sun, not the Earth
