Q:

What is Jupiter's period of revolution?

A:

Quick Answer

Jupiter's period of revolution around the sun is approximately 11.86 Earth years, which comes out to around 4,332 days. This revolution period is due to Jupiter's average orbit distance of 483.5 million miles. By comparison, the Earth's average orbit distance is only approximately 93 million miles.

Full Answer

Jupiter's orbit has a distance variation of approximately 18.6 million miles that varies depending on how close the planet is to the sun. As the planet is only titled at an angle of 3.13 degrees, it does not experience changing seasons while orbiting the sun. Jupiter is the fastest planet in the Solar System in terms of rotational speed with one day on Jupiter passing in approximately 9.97 Earth hours.
