Saturn's rotational period is the Saturnian "day." As Saturn is a gas giant, the visible features on Saturn rotate at different rates depending on latitude; the Equatorial Zone has a period of 10 h 14 min 00 s. All other Saturnian latitudes have been assigned a rotation period of 10 h 39 min 24 s.

The precise value for the rotation period of the interior remains elusive but the best estimate is approximately 10 h 45 m 45 s (± 36 s).

The revolution period of Saturn refers to the orbital period around the Sun (the Saturn "year"), which is about 10,579 Earth days or 29.5 Earth years.

What is Saturn's period of rotation?

Saturn's period of rotation is the time it takes to rotate once on  its axis. It takes 10 hours and 39 minutes for Saturn to rotate,  making a day on Saturn shorter than a d

Do Saturn's rings rotate?

  Yes, they have to rotate to stay in orbit and not just fall down into Saturn. The rings aren't solid objects, they are made of millions of tiny bits of dust and ice. E

What is rotation and revolution?

Rotation is how an object spins on its axis, like a planet, or a baseball or tennis ball with spin on it. Revolution is how an object revolves around another object, like the

Earth's period of revolution is 8766.15 hours How many times does earth rotate during one revolution around the sun?

Earth rotates once every 24 hours. If you divide 8766.15 by 24, you get pretty close to the number of days in a year.   __________   Not quite. 24 hours is the average s

What is Saturn's rotation?

The visible features of Saturn rotate at different rates depending on their latitude (distance from the equator). Astronomers have developed three different systems for measur
