In effect yes because the suns light would be reflected of it, the nights would be lighter though as SOME light would get through to the other side
First, the earth does not rotate around the sun, it orbits. The earth rotates around its own north-south axis. For these reasons, if the earth did not orbit the sun, it would still rotate on its own axis, and there would still be night and day.
as far as i think it wont be night as sun's rays would be reaching still reaching the east side of the earth . night would be only on the southern part of the earth.
The Sun is actually standing still, so to speak. The Earth is rotating around it. But if the Earth were to stay still, then it would always be day on one side and night on the other. Plus, the plants and animals on the night side might die out.
The night of Kristallnacht would be the Night of Broken Glass.
If Earth didn't have a moon then there would still be day and night. Day and night are caused by the earth revolving (spinning)around. When the place you're in is facing the sun then it is day. When it is facing the other way it is night. It takes the Earth about 24 hours to spin which is why there are 24 hours in a day. If there was no moon our months would probably be different as they are roughly based on the moon -this would also affect our weeks. The moon also has an effect on tides.
If the Earth had no moon, there would be little, if any, tides. It would also be a lot darker at night (but the stars would still be there) and there would be no eclipses (lunar or solar).
I take it you mean would the Sun's light pass through it? I think that even the clearest glass would stop being translucent at the thickness of the Earth. The Earth is over 12,000 kilometres from one pointon the surface to the opposite point on a line going through the middle. If you get a chance, try looking through the side of a sheet of glass. You don't see through too well.
Yes. Glass is transparent, not invisible. Water's pretty transparent, but it's impossible to see the bottom of the ocean in most places, even when it's only a few kilometers deep. A typical absorption coefficient for glass might be 10-6 per cm. After a million centimeters (1 km), there's not going to be much light getting through. A glass object the size of Earth (about 12000 km diameter) would not let any detectable amount of light through.
No, but we still would have seasons and years. ______________ Oh, this is a wonderous question. We are so connected to earth-bound thinking. Yes, there would be a day and night, and the day/night cycle would be equal to a year. Not only that, but the sun would rise in the west, and set in the east. This results from the fact that the earth is orbiting the sun, and while the orbit is not itself a 'rotation', all parts of the earth would experience a period of daylight and night time over the course of a year if the earth were not rotating relative to the fixed stars. And this relationship to the fixed stars is how rotation of earth is determined and measured.
No because if the earth did not rotate there would either be only day or only night .
If you mean a drinking glass, I would use millimeters. If you mean a pane of glass I would still use mm
The surface of the earth holds heat, and the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere hold heat all through the night. If the earth had no atmosphere, then at night all the heat would escape out to space and the earth would be freezing.
the earth would not be as bright at night, and would possibly lose its gravitational pull from earth.
There would be random weather and temperatures everyday. There would be no rotation around the sun, and the Earth would be still. Meaning on one side of the Earth, it would be daylight forever. The same goes for the other side, Night forever. So as you see, we need the seasons.
If it did not rotate relative to the background stars, there would be a day and night, but the day/night cycle would be 1 year in length. If one face of the earth was always facing the sun, one side of the planet would always be day, while the other would always be night - the earth would have to spin on its axis once in a year for this to happen.
Depends on the size of the glass i guess?
if the earth did not have an atmosphere temperature extremes between day and night would be what?
Yes, there would.
if there were no moon, there would be no light in the sky at night (earth would be a lot darker at night, earth's days would be longer (earth will rotate slower), and there will be no tides (the moon pulls the tides)
There would be no seasons, and no change in the length of day and night, anywhere on Earth.
Seasons would stop. There would be no change in day or night.
