1). The day would be shorter than 24 hours. 2). There would be more days in a year. 3). Areas of atmospheric high- and low-pressure would be more pronounced, with higher winds and more active weather systems surrounding them. 4). Theoretically, all objects would appear to weigh less than they do now. #1, #2, and #3 would be very noticeable. #4 would not be very noticeable unless the earth rotated MUCH faster than it does now. Some possible effects that are "farther out": -- increased earthquake and volcanic activity, and changes in terrestrial magnetic field behavior, over geologic time periods, due to modified internal heat generation and distribution caused by increased tidal friction; -- increased rate of rotational de-celeration, also due to increased tidal effects; -- increased rate of expansion of the moon's orbital distance, due to accelerated rate of exchange of angular momentum within the 2-body system.

What would happen if the earth did not rotate?

If the earth did not rotate, many processes that we take for  granted would be disrupted or even stop entirely. A couple  examples:    day and night would change only

What would happen if earth's rotation was faster?

  Days would be shorter, and the upper level winds would be faster. Note; days are getting longer, not shorter ... several billion years ago the day was only 8 hours l

What would happen when the earth is rotating?

What do you mean? Earth rotates already. And u can see the stuff that happens. When the Earth is rotating the same things happen as are happening now (presumably). However, sh

If earth were not rotating what would happen?

-- Daylight would be 6 months long, and it would get much hotter during the day. -- Night-time darkness would also be 6 months long, and it would get much colder during th
