Asked in Planet Earth
Does Jupiter have a prograde rotation or retrograde rotation?
prograde (about the same as the rest of the celestial bodies in the system) ...
Asked in Planetary Science
What is difference between prograde rotation and retrograde rotation?
Prograde rotation turns counter clockwise while retrograde rotation turns clockwise. ( As viewed from above the Earth's North Pole.) ...
Asked in Science, Planetary Science, Planet Mercury
Does mercury have a prograde or retrograde motion?
Prograde. In our solar system, prograde is counterclockwise rotation or revolution. Retrograde is clockwise rotation or revolution. Clockwise and counterclockwise are "as viewed from above the Earth's north pole". All solar system planets have a prograde rotation except Venus and Uranus which have retrograde rotation. All the planets have prograde orbital motion (revolution) around the Sun. So, Mercury has prograde motion in both cases. ...
Asked in Dwarf Planet Pluto
Does Pluto orbit in a a retrograde orbit or a prograde orbit?
Pluto, like most bodies in the solar system, has a prograde orbit (inclination: ~17° from the ecliptic). Its rotation is retrograde, though (inclined at ~120°). ...
Asked in Planet Jupiter
Does Neptune have prograde or retrograde rotation?
No. Neptune rotates counter clockwise like most of the planets do.
What is Prograde Rotation?
"Prograde" means "in the normal direction". Everything in THIS solar system rotates counter-clockwise, or CCW. Well, ALMOST everything; there are two planets whose rotation is "retrograde", which means "in the opposite direction". The planet Venus rotates - VERY SLOWLY! - in a "retrograde" or clockwise direction. ...
Asked in Astronomy
What is the difference between prograde rotation and retrograde rotation?
Retrograde motion is the opposite of prograde motion. So, retrograde motion is where a body is moving in the direction opposite to the movement of something else. Not to be confused with apparent retrograde motion. [See related link] If you were on a child's roundabout and your friend was running alongside in the same direction you were spinning, that would be prograde. If however, your friend turned around and ran the opposite way, that would be retrograde motion. [See related link for a...
How do prograde rotation amd retrograde rotation differ?
Retrograde motion refers to the behaviour of an outer planet while it is overtaken by the Earth, around the time of opposition. At that time the planet appears to move backwards along the ecliptic. ...
Asked in Science, The Difference Between
What is the difference between prograde and retrograde?
Prograde motion is a counter-clockwise motion or west to east, retrograde motion is clockwise motion or east to west. ...
