Which planet has the longest orbital period?
Neptune, the farthest planet from the Sun
Since Pluto is no longer considered a planet that title goes to Neptune, with an orbital period of 165 years.
Saturn, with an orbital period of 29.4 years.
Neptune, at about 165 Earth years.
Uranus has the second longest year after Neptune with an orbital period (Year) of 84.323 326 years
Jupiter takes 11.86 Earth years to orbit the Sun - this is the 4th longest orbital period.
The dwarf planet Sedna is believed to have an orbital period of about 11,400 years. It orbits at a distance between 76 and 937 astronomical units.
The planet Jupiter has an orbital period of about 12 years.
Neptune has the longest orbital period, which is equal to 59,800 Earth days. Pluto's is even longer (90,588 Earth days), but it has since been reclassified as a dwarf planet.
As Pluto is no longer considered a planet, the planet with the longest orbital period is Neptune. The Neptunian year is approximately 60,190 Earth days.
Planet Neptune has a very long orbital period compared to Earth's. Neptune's orbital period is 60,190.03 days or almost 165 years.
If you mean revolution on it axis (spin/day length) rather than orbital period, then the answer is the planet Mercury, where time between sunrises is roughly 176 Earth days.
Orbital period is the time it takes a planet to go around its star once.
Revolution of a planet can mean two things: * orbital period - the time it takes to orbit the Sun - then the answer is Neptune, the farthest planet. Neptune takes about 165 years to orbit the sun once. It is thus the planet in our solar system with the longest period of revolution. The dwarf planet Sedna may take as long as 12,000 years to orbit the sun. * rotational period - the time… Read More
What is the difference between the period of rotation of a planet and the orbital period of a planet around the sun?
period of rotation = day (24 hrs. only for Earth) orbital period = year (not 365.25 days only for Earth)
Pluto has the longest REVOLUTION period Venus has the longest ROTATION period
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and has an orbital period of 88 Earth days. (Pluto in contrast has an orbital period of about 248 Earth years.)
Pluto is now a dwarf planet with a period of 248 years. The planet with the longest orbit is Neptune with a period of 165 years. The dwarf planet with the longest orbit is Eris with a period of 557 years.
84 years. 84.01 years. The period of orbital revolution for the planet Uranus is 84.01 earth years.
you are chicken
Neptune has 13 known moons and an orbital period of about 60190 Earth days.
All 8 planets, including dwarf planet Pluto, orbit the Sun. As their distance from the Sun increases, the time it takes for the planet to complete one revolution around the Sun increases as well. In order from shortest orbital period to longest orbital period: Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune
A year (or orbital period) is defined as the period it takes a planet to orbit the Sun.
The square of the orbital period of a planet is directly proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit.
That would be Venus.
Mercury, 88 days.
Within the Solar System, Venus has the longest period of rotation at 243 days.
Mars has an orbital period of very approximately twice that of the earth
Nereid has a long orbital period, but there are others with longer periods, for example Phoebe, a moon of Saturn. If you count all the moons, including the really small ones, the answer is "Neso" the outermost moon of Neptune. That has an orbital period of over 25 Earth years.
Neptune has the longest orbital revolution, taking 164.8 yrs to go about the Sun. The dwarf planet Pluto used to hold the record taking 248 years to circle the Sun.
Neptune is the gas giant furthest from the Sun and Kepler's third law tells us that the period of revolution of a planet around the sun increases as distance from the Sun increases. It does not matter if the planet is a gas giant or not. The law says period depends on distance and not mass. It takes 60,190 days for Neptune to orbit the Sun which is about 165 Earth years. For that matter… Read More
The square of the orbital period of a planet around the sun is proportional to the cube of the planet's orbital radius?
Yes, spot on, good guess . .
Mars has an orbital period of around 687 days.
Approx 88 days.
Neptune has the longest period of revolution around the Sun. (You may mean longest period of rotation on its axis. In that case it's Venus.)
That is that planet's "year", or its orbital period.
Temperature and orbital period.
Venus has an orbital period of 224.7 Earth days.
Venus. It orbital period is 224 days and its rotation period is 243 days.
Ceres has a rotation period of 0.3781 days, and an orbital period of 4.6 years.
The period of revolution of a planetis thetimein whichthe planet revolves oncearound the Sunin its orbital path.
Venus has the longest period of rotation. It's about 243 Earth days.
An Earth day is 24 hours no matter what planet you are on. If you mean the planet which has the longest day then it's Venus or Mercury. Venus has the longest period of rotation. That's called the "sidereal day". Venus has a sidereal day of -243.0185 Earth days. The "minus" means it rotates in a direction opposite to the Earth and all the other planets, except Uranus. The other important definition of "day" is… Read More
Neptune or Uranus
The distance between the sun and a planet determines its orbital period, its orbital speed, and the amount of insolation. Other factors such as composition and albedo are required to determine other variables.
The orbital period of Saturn is 29.4571 years. Its orbital velocity is 9.69 kilometers per second and the orbital path is about 9 billion kilometers.
Here are a few unique characteristics about each of the 8 planets in our Solar System: Mercury • has no atmosphere at all, so the temperature is about 750 F (400 C) in the daytime and -300 F (-180 C) in the nighttime. Also, with no protection from asteroids, Mercury's surface is heavily cratered. • smallest planet • planet with fastest orbital period (approx. 88 days) Venus • has very thick atmosphere of sulfuric acid… Read More
Eris is the most massive known dwarf planet in our solar system. It has an orbital period of 557 years.
Mars with an orbital period of 1.88 years.
Almost exactly 88 Earth days.
