The outer planets take longer to orbit the Sun, because they are farther away from the Sun. It make its gravitational pull weaker to the farther planets. That means that the outer planets take longer to orbit the Sun.

The outer planets take longer to orbit the Sun, because they are farther away from the Sun. It make its gravitational pull weaker to the farther planets. That means that the outer planets take longer to orbit the Sun.

It takes the outer planets longer to orbit the sun because, there farther away from it.

because more away from the sun the longer time it take for the sun to orbit that planet

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.

Some planets take longer to orbit the sun because they are farther away giving them a longer path to travel.

Closer planets have a short orbit time, while further planets take longer to orbit the sun. The further a planet is from the sun, the slower it's orbital speed. Additionally, it has to travel further, so it takes longer to orbit.

The outer planets take longer because they have a greater distance to travel.

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.

A year for a planet is the time it takes for that planet to orbit the sun. Some planets take longer to orbit the sun because they are farther away from the sun than Earth, so those planets have a farther distance to cover to orbit the sun once than the Earth does.

Days are longer on other planets because they take longer to orbit because the sun is further away there days have to be longer for more time for the sun to orbit

Plutos Orbits length is unusually longer than other planets orbits.But its width is shorter than Neptunes orbit. So at one point in Plutos orbit it is closer to the sun than Neptune. Its estimated time to orbit is around 250 years

Because the outer planets don't have a strong gravitational pull towards the sun

All those planets which lie outside (relative to the sun) earth's orbit will take longer than earth (1 year) to orbit the sun. Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune

As planets are found in orbits further out from the Sun, these will take longer to complete an orbit - basically they have further to travel to complete an orbit. However to stay in orbit they do not have to travel as fast (to stay in orbit) as planets closer to the Sun. This is because the force of gravity falls of with the square of the distance the two bodies are apart. The Suns outermost planet is Neptune (Pluto is no longer a planet) and it takes 164 Earth years to orbit the Sun!

Saturn orbits the Sun like the other planets, it does not orbit anything else. One orbit for Saturn takes 29.4571 Earth years.

This is how long it takes the first 5 planets to orbit the Sun. Mercury: 0.2 years Venus:0.6 years Earth: 1 year Mars: 2 years

The time of revolving depends on the distance so that the more distant planets take longer to get round, and as well as that they move more slowly, which makes them take even longer. The record is held by the dwarf planet Sedna, which takes 11,400 years for one revolution of its highly elliptical orbit.

The length of time it takes for a planet to orbit the sun is based on its distance from the sun, not its mass. The farther a planet is from the sun, the larger its orbital path, and the longer it takes to complete an orbit.

Well for Earth it is 365 days or one year. Actually for all planets it is one year it's just that some have longer or shorter years than we do.

Halley's Comet takes 73.5 years to orbit the sun but every comet is different just like planets.
