How long does it take for Saturn to rotate on it's axis?

A planet's day is the time it takes the planet to rotate or spin once on its axis. Saturn rotates faster than Earth so a day on Saturn is shorter than a day on Earth. A day on Saturn is 10.656 hours long.


How does the time rotation of Jupiter and Saturn compare with that of earth?

Does earth spin faster than Saturn?

No. Earth does not spin faster than Saturn. Saturn spins faster than all the planets except Jupiter. Extra information- Jupiter is bigger than Saturn.For more information, visit the NASA website:http://www.nasa.gov/worldbook/saturn_worldbook.html


How long are day on Saturn?

Since gas planets like Saturn are not exactly as easy to find measurements with as solids such as Earth, it's harder to tell. However, since Saturn does rotate faster than the Earth, a "day" there would be 10.656 hours long.

Does Saturn rotate more quickly thn earth?

Saturn's rotational period is just over ten hours. This means that it does spin on its axis much faster than Earth, especially considering its larger size.


Which planet spins twice as fast as the Earth?

First you may want to decide what you mean with "fast" - velocity in km/hour? Angular velocity?Both Jupiter and Saturn spin more than twice as fast as Earth (angular velocity). You may also want to check the rotation of Uranus and Neptune, they rotate faster than Earth, but not twice as fast.First you may want to decide what you mean with "fast" - velocity in km/hour?

Does mars rotate faster than the earth?

No The time it takes for the Earth to rotate a full rotation is 24 hrs. However, the time it takes for Mars to rotate a full rotation is 24 hrs and 39 mins, which is 39 mins longer than the rotational period of the Earth. Comparing the rotational periods of Mars to the Earth, we figure out that Mars rotates slower, not faster, than the Earth.
