Do all the planets spin the same way?
No, Venus and Uranus spin clockwise while all the other planets spin counter-clockwise.
I am not sure what you are asking here, So I will try my best at guessing. Why does the earth rotate in the direction and the way it does, and all of the other planets rotate in the direction as well, and all of the planets orbit in the same direction around the star. All orbiting the same way. The milky Way Galaxy spirals again in the same circular orbit direction. I too wondered… Read More
We believe that all the planets orbit in similar planes (they aren't exactly the same, but they're all pretty close) because this was the way the pre-planetary nebula was rotating before it collapsed to form our solar system. All the planets orbit in the same direction that the Sun spins. All the planets spin in this same direction except Venus and Neptune. (Venus spins very slowly the opposite way, and Neptune's axis of rotation is… Read More
'Counter-clockwise' requires a reference point such that we can determine which side of the galactic plane one is on to look at the direction of spin. That said, the planets do all orbit in the same direction. Additionally, Venus, Uranus and the Plutoid all spin in different directions than the other planets, which spin the same way as their orbits. Venus spins in the exact opposite direction (retrograde), Uranus has its axis of spin on… Read More
all planets spin the same way' except for 1. this odd planet is venus.out of all the nine planets, venus is the only planet to spin clockwise. this is because billions of years ago venus got hit by an asteroid, this asteroid effected not only the way that it spins, but also how fast it will go. Jupiter spins faster than any other planet. A point on the equator of Jupiter spins faster around the… Read More
Why do all the planets go around the sun in the same direction and why do planet line in a flat plane?
Because the sun is responsible for everything in the Solar system the planets lie on the suns equatorial line and still spin like they did before the planets formed. All the planets go around the sun the same way and lie on a relatively flat plane because of gravity. This is just a theory.
counterclockwise. all planets in the splor system spin this way apart from venus, which turns clockwise.
In fact, Venus, Uranus, and the "dwarf planet" Pluto orbit the Sun in the same direction as all the other planets. So all the planets orbit in the same way. However they rotate in the opposite direction to the other planets.
Saturn spins west-to-east (counterclockwise as viewed from above the north pole), the same as the Earth, the Sun, and most planets. That is, if we view the solar system from a point above the Sun's north pole, the Sun spins counterclockwise, the major planets and most small bodies all move around the Sun in a counterclockwise direction, and most of the major planets and small bodies spin counterclockwise on their own axes.
Venus and Uranus?
Interestingly, MOST things in our solar system spin that way; counter-clockwise as seen from a location high above the north pole. All the planets orbit that way; most of the planets SPIN that way. (Venus hardly spins at all, but is backwards, while Neptune's spin axis is nearly parallel to the ecliptic.) So does the Sun itself. We can't be certain as to the cause, but it seems likely that the original nebula that collapsed… Read More
Galaxies spin in all different directions. Some galaxies even spin in different directions within themselves.
no they do not they only tilt what way the sun is
Venus rotates (spins) very slowly east to west (clockwise as seen from its north pole). This is the opposite of Earth and other planets, which spin counter-clockwise. However, all of the major planets continue to revolve (orbit) in the same direction.
All the planets rotate on their axis counterclockwise, excepy Venus which rotates clockwise.
It isn't ,it is against the laws of Phisics; One of the Laws of Physics;Conservation of Angular Momentum e.g.If an object is spinning clockwise and bits fly off it they will also spin Clockwise as they fly off. Try it at home!; get some Friends on a merry go round get some Strong guy to spin your freinds round clockwise and when they fly off,they will fly off spinning clockwise never anti clockwise.try it. Anyway… Read More
Both Venus and Uranus have a retrograde axial spin, they rotate clockwise when viewed from above their north pole. All of the other planets rotate anticlockwise (counter clockwise).
Venus rotates clock-wise, not like all the other planets who spin counter clock-wise.
because of the way rock and debris hit them they spin faster
Within our solar system, almost all of the rotational energy seems to be counter-clockwise. The Earth and all the other planets orbit the Sun counter-clockwise, and the Sun and Earth spin CCW.
Looked at from above the Earth's North Pole, most of them spin anticlockwise. Venus and Uranus are the exceptions.
Planets rotate around the sun. ______________________ Actually, EVERYTHING seems to rotate. Planets spin. So do stars. Planets rotate around stars, and moons rotate around planets. There are many multiple-star systems, and the planets orbit their common center of mass, or "barycenter". All the stars in the Milky Way rotate around the center of the Milky Way.
they are all planets. they are all in the milky way galaxy. they are all in the same solar system. they all orbit the sun. hope this helps :)
cyclones. We say hurricanes. Thank you for asking such an educated question! Your welcome and bye!">Yes they do all spin the same way ~ counter clockwise. But in Australia, they spin clockwise because of they are in the southern hemisphere, while a hurricane is the same type of storm in the northern hemisphere. They call them cyclones. We say hurricanes. Thank you for asking such an educated question! Your welcome and bye!
Counter-clockwise. Looking down on the solar system from the Sun's North pole, all the planets orbit in an anticlockwise direction. Also most planets spin on their own axis in a counter- clockwise direction. The Moon revolves round the Earth in the same counter- clockwise direction as the Earth's spin. Thus, to keep the same face pointing to the Earth while it makes a revolution round the Earth the Moon must also rotate in an counter… Read More
An excellent question. And to be honest, only the equatorial regions take that long; the polar regions rotate more slowly. Since the Sun is plasma rather than a solid, it doesn't all have to move together. We suspect that the region that the Sun, the planets, and everything else in the solar system are all spinning is that the mass in the original nebula was all falling in from slightly different direction. With every independent… Read More
Sidereal rotation periods, or time taken (in days) for the planets to spin on their axis relative to the background stars are as follows; Mercury = 58.646Venus = -243.019Earth = 0.997Mars = 1.026Jupiter = 0.410Saturn = 0.426Uranus = -0.718Neptune = 0.671 note that the negative figure for Venus and Neptune show a spin in the opposite way (retrograde).
Yes it does. "Wrong ???' Try different from most of the other planets.
All the planets in the solar system are approximately the same age. Extrasolar planets are all approximately the same age as the star they orbit. Population II (low metallicity) stars are the oldest stars, but they're unlikely to have planets.
Most but not all larger MOONS (bodies that orbit planets, moons, or asteroids) accreted in the same way that PLANETS did, assuming a variable density and a nearly spherical shape. Very large moons such as Titan have many of the characteristics of planets: vulcanism, atmospheres, and weather. Generally speaking, moons orbit planets in the same way that planets orbit stars.
Looking from high above the North Pole, almost everything in the solar system turns counter-clockwise. The planets all orbit that way, and all except two of the planets spin that way as well. The two exceptions are Venus, which just barely rotates at all (but clockwise) and Neptune, which rotates more on its side than anything else.
The Question isn't "why" the big bang it's did it even happen?,is it scientifically possible according to the basic laws of Phisics? One of the Laws of Physics;Conservation of Angular Momentum e.g.If an object is spinning clockwise and bits fly off it they will also spin Clockwise as they fly off. Try it at home!; get some Friends on a merry go round get some Strong guy to spin your Friends round clockwise and when… Read More
you spin any pen the same way. if you dont know how to pen spin, find out
As seen from a location high above the north pole, nearly everything in our solar system rotates counter-clockwise. All the planets orbit counter-clockwise (sometimes in ancient texts called "widdershins") and 6 of the 8 planets spin that way. The Moon orbits CCW, and rotates that way as well.
It spins around the earth on an axis like how the planets spin around the sun.
The same way as earth. If viewed from above the Sun's north pole, all of the planets orbiting the sun do so in a counter-clockwise direction. All the planets except Venus also rotate counter-clockwise.
Everything in the solar system rotates the same way because everything was formed from the same cloud of gas originally, and that's the way it was rotating when it was formed.
Venus has a retrograde rotation. A retrograde rotation is the clockwise spin of a planet or moon as seen from above the planet's North Pole. Venus and Uranus are the only planets with a retrograde rotation. Mercury, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune all have pro-grade rotation which is the counterclockwise spin of a planet or moon as seen from above a planets North Pole. A good way to remember which planets have a retrograde… Read More
As best we know, the same way all the other planets did: accretion of objects in a protoplanetary disk.
From a rotating could of gas and dust that condensed the Sun and a ring of dust and gas orbiting the Sun. The Planets then planets accredited from the material in this ring. This means that they all orbit and rotate the same way.
The shape of orbit that planets take around the Sun is called an ellipse. All the planets orbit in the same direction. That's anticlockwise, as viewed from above Earth's North Pole.
Anti-clockwise when viewed from the Sun's north pole, the same way as all the other planets. Mercury's orbit is quite eccentric and elongated when compared to the other planets, however.
Scientists observe dwarf planets the same way they observe all other celestial bodies; telescopes of all sorts and sizes, with the addition of mathematics to calculate positions and properties.
The same direction the planets orbit. Whether that's clockwise or counter clockwise depends on where you look at it from. OK, so let's look from above the Earth's North Pole. Then we see the Sun spins counter clockwise.
Venus spins the "wrong" way as compared to the other planets, but VERY slowly. (A "sidereal day" on Venus is longer than the "year"!) The spin of Uranus is more or less "sideways" as compared to the other planets. All the other planets, and the Sun itself, spin "counter-clockwise" as viewed from a location high above the north pole. That's called "prograde rotation". So, all the planets in our solar system have prograde rotation ,except… Read More
Yes. Looking downward from our pole star, it would be counterclockwise.
All the planets in the solar system orbit in the same direction, counter-clockwise.
You see Mars the same way you see the other planets such as Jupiter or Venus; the same way that you see ANYTHING. Light from the Sun shines on all the planets just as it does on Earth, and the reflected light from Mars comes back to your eye here on Earth.
A twister and a tornado are the same thing so yes.
All hurricanes north of the equator spin counterclockwise.
Another question for which we cannot be certain of the answer. However, we can be fairly sure that some of what we call "fundamental laws of nature" will act predictably. One of these is the "law of conservation of angular momentum". Another is the law of gravity. The matter that made up our solar system was, five billion years ago, an enormous cloud of dust and gas. Some of the gas had been floating around… Read More
