What is the angle of the orbit of Jupiter to that of the total angular momentum of Solar System, and what is the precession period?

What is the angle of the axis of the Sun to that of the total angular momentum of Solar System, and what is the precession period?

What is the angle of the orbit of Jupiter to that of the total angular momentum of Solar System...?
The two planes are separated by about 1/3 of a degree, so your answer is either 89 and 2/3 degrees, or 90 and 1/3 degrees, depending on how you look at it.

What is the angle of the axis of the Sun to that of the total angular momentum of Solar System
Approximately 5 and 2/3 degrees.

I have no clue about the precession periods.
