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 time for earth to rotate once on its axis increased?

If the amount of time it takes the Earth to rotate once on its axis  increases, it would take longer for the day/night cycle to  complete. Therefore, days would be longer. T

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 Mars rotate faster or slower than Earth?

Just a bit slower. It's rotation period is 24 hours and 37 minutes. Just imagine, if you lived on Mars, you could sleep in an extra half hour, and still have an extra seven mi

What would happen if the period of the rotation of earth were the same as its period of revolution?

This question reminds the present fact that period of revolution of the moon is the same as its period of rotation around the earth. So it shows only one hemispherical face to

Does the moon rotate faster than earth?

Not at all. The Moon always shows the same half towards the Earth, while the Earth rotates every day (that is one definition of a "day", in fact). The Moon revolves around t

What would happen if the moon rotated faster?

It would spin out of earths orbit. And most likely hit a planet, star, comet, or keep on going.

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
In Science

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
