Earth is 1 AU from the Sun and Jupiter is 5.2 AU from the sun. Assuming we travel in a straight line we need to pass 4.2*150= 630 million kilometers.

At 2 million km/hr it would take 315 hours which is 13 days and 8 hours.

This calculation is not considering relativistic effects.

### How long would it take to get to Jupiter going at 40000 miles per hour?

Spacecraft do not travel in a straight line. They usually swing
past other objects, such as the moon, and in doing so gain
"slingshot" acceleration. Also, the distance between the Earth and
Jupiter depends on where in their orbit they are. It can range from
630 million to 930 million km. At 40000 miles per hour, it would
take between 9840 and 14530 hours, approx.

### How long will it take to get to Jupiter going at 200 000 km an hour?

Jupiter, at its closest, is 591 000 000 (five hundred and ninety
one million) miles away. To work out how long it will take to get
to Jupiter travelling at 200 000 km/h you have to do the following
equation: time = distance x speed so... time = 591 000 000 x 200
000 = 1.182 x 10^14 which is equal to 118200000000000 hours

### How long does it for Jupiter to orbit the sun?

"How long goes it take Jupiter to orbit the Sun?" is a question
that we get from time to time here on Universe Today. Jupiter
orbits the Sun every 11.86 Earth years (or 4,332 days). The longer
orbital period for Jupiter is because it orbits at an average
distance of 778 million km(Earth orbits at an average of 150
million km).
