Space

Revolution

There are two types of Earth revolution: around its axis and around the Sun. The Earth revolves around the Sun once every 365.242199 mean solar days(that's why we have leap years). The Earth orbits the Sun at a speed of 108,000 km/h. It revolves(rotates) on its axis once during an approximate 24 hours.

What is rotation and revolution

Rotation is when a planet or moon turns all the way around or spins on its axis one time. The axis of rotation is an imaginary line going from the north pole to the south pole. When a planet or moon travels once around an object this is considered a revolution.

What is the rotation and revolution of the moon

This is called a sidereal month, and reflects the corresponding orbital period of 27.3 days The moon takes 29.5 days to return to the same point on the celestial sphere as referenced to the Sun because of the motion of the Earth around the Sun.

What is meant by the rotation and revolution of the planet

Revolution Rotation. The moon and Earth both revolve and rotate on their way around in our solar system, but what is the difference between the two movements? Rotation is when a planet or moon turns all the way around or spins on its axis one time.
