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 do you think would happen if the Earth stopped rotating?

If the Earth stopped rotating, one half of the world would be in daylight all the time, and the other half would be night all the time, and this would have unfortunate consequ

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

Does Jupiter rotate faster then earth?

Yes. The planet Jupiter rotates once in about 11 hours.

Which rotates faster sun or earth?

  The earth rotates on it's axis faster than the sun. We rotate once per day. The sun rotates at different rates as it is not solid it is made up of gas and plasma. The Eq

What would happen if the moon did not rotate as it revolved around the earth?

A change in the speed of rotation of the moon would have little effect. Tides on earth would be the same. The pattern of waxing and waning crescent would be the same. Pe

What would happen if the earth did not rotate on its axis?

If I'm correct, one side of the Earth would be really hot and pretty much burn and the other side would be incredibly cold. Comment: If the Earth did not rotate at all, the ho

What would happen in the earth stopped rotating?

If somehow the Earth stops rotating completely, we will have months of all daylight then months of all night. Also there would be other effects: The magnetic field would pro

What would happen if Earth orbited the sun but did not rotate on its axis?

-- Wherever you live, you would see the sun rise in the west,  cross the sky very   slowly, and set in the east six months later. Every place on Earth  would have six
