It depends on how you define "day". A "solar day" is roughly from sunrise to the following sunrise, or more exactly noon to noon. A "sidereal day" is one complete rotation of a planet relative to the background stars. The orbit of the planet around the Sun affects how the sidereal day is related to the length of the solar day.
Mercury has a solar day longer than its year.
Venus has a sidereal day longer than its year.
Mercury takes 88 Earth days to go around the Sun. But it spins very slowly on its axis, once every 58.6 Earth days relative to background stars. Because it is turning as it orbits, the solar day (sunrise to sunrise) on Mercury takes 176 Earth days, which is twice the length of its year.
Venus takes 243 Earth days to spin on its axis relative to the background stars (its "sidereal day"). It takes 224.7 Earth days to orbit the Sun. Its rotation, moreover, is clockwise, unlike the Earth and most other planets. Because of this reverse rotation, and its slowness compared with the orbital period, a "solar day" is only 116.75 Earth days.

Venus "sidereal day" is longer than its year. Mercury's "solar day" is longer than its year. However, there is no planet in our solar system with a day longer than our year on Earth.
the farther away from the sun the day must be longer.
All planets have a year longer than a day on Earth. (This is a transposition of the related question below.)
All planet's years are longer than their days except for Venus.You probably meant to ask which planet's day is longer than its year, and the answer is Venus.
Venus. The year is 224 days, the "day" is 243 days.
Venus. That's the "sidereal day" (rotation period). However, Venus has a "solar day" that's shorter than its year. Mercury is the planet with a "solar day" that's longer than its year.
Venus has a rotation period (which is one definition of a "day") that's longer than its year (the time to orbit the Sun).
On the planet Venus - it takes longer for Venus to make one rotation than it does for it to go around the sun once, so Venus' day is LONGER than it's year. Imagine that?
No planet in our solar system has days longer than one Earth year. Venus has the longest day -- it's 243 Earth days.
Venus has a day longer than a year. Its day (243 Earth days) is 18 Earth days longer than its year (225 Earth days). 2gv ?z'\ q\'b.;hj',k;
venus one day is 243 earth days and a year is 225 earth days
Yes - a prime example is the planet Venus... Its 'day' is 243 Earth days, and it's 'year' is 225 Earth days, meaning a day on Venus is longer than it's year !
The Planet Venus has the slowest rotation rate because one day there is longer than the year on Venus or longer than its revolution around the sun.
None, unless you are talking about the dwarf planet Pluto in which the planet's day is longer than it's year.
Year. did you know that a Venian (Venus) day is longer than it's year?
Venus. But very slowly! The "day" on Venus is actually longer than the "year".
Yes. In fact, Venus has a longer day than its year.
