Venus is 0.72 AU from the Sun and Neptune is 30.06 AU from the Sun. Both have similar orbital eccentricities, 0.7 and 1.0 respectively. Predict how long it will take Venus to make one revolution around the sun compared to Neptune. Also predict the orbital speed of Venus and Neptune; you don't need numbers, just a qualitative description
