yes, the further a planet is from the sun, the greater the distance it has to travel to make one orbit.


What is is called when you travel around the sun or planet?

When you travel around the Sun or a planet, due to gravitational attraction, it is called an "orbit". It is also a "revolution" around the Sun or planet.


Inertia makes a plant tend to travel in a straight line but what keeps it in orbit?

Gravity keeps a planet in orbit. Inertia tries to make the planet move in a straight line. The balance between the two makes the planet orbit a sun.

Which planet takes longest to orbit around the sun and why?

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!


Which planet has the smallest orbit and the largest orbit?

The plane with the smallest orbit is Mercury, and the planet with the largest orbit is Neptune.
