What is a planet that appears to spin in a counterclockwise direction?
The planet Neptune rotates in a counterclockwise direction.
It has a retrograde rotation.
This is the definition of prograde rotation. In the solar system, a rotating body seen from its North Pole will appear to be spinning counterclockwise. This is different then retrograde rotation in which a body spins in the opposite direction.
All of the planets spin counterclockwise with the exception of Venus. Venus, which is the second planet from the sun, spins in a clockwise direction,
Venus, Uranus, and the dwarf planet Pluto all spin in a clockwise direction as seen looking down on their north poles. The other planets rotate in a counterclockwise direction.
Cyclones in the Southern hemisphere spin in a clockwise direction. Cyclones in the Northern hemisphere spin in a counterclockwise direction.
Most of the planets in our solar system spin anticlockwise (counterclockwise) when viewed from above the north pole, but Uranus and Venus are exceptions - they spin clockwise on their axis.
If it is in the northern hemisphere it will spin counterclockwise. If it is in the southern hemisphere it will spin clockwise.
The direction of the Earth's spin and the direction of the Moon's orbit is the same - counterclockwise
counterclockwise but also clockwise
Counterclockwise. All objects in space spin counterclockwise except Venus because it is was to believed to be hit by a large object that changed its spin.
When a planet that appears to spin counterclockwise when viewed from its north pole has what kind of rotation?
Any planet, moon or object that rotates in the opposite to us (Well we have to have a common denominator) is said to be in retrograde rotation (or retrograde motion) But most objects in the solar system appear to spin counterclockwise when viewed from above the north pole, so this is normal rotation, not retrograde.
Cyclones spin counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere.
Prograde rotation is the counterclockwise spin of a planet or moon as seen from above the planet's North Pole; rotation in the same direction as the sun's rotation.
Low pressure systems such as hurricanes spin counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere.
Scientists think that a collision with another proto-planet occurred shortly after the planet Venus formed. The collision stopped its counterclockwise spin and left it with a very slow rotation in the clockwise direction (as seen from the north, i.e. above the ecliptic plane. All of the other major planets still spin in their original direction. However, the planet Uranus evidently had a similar incident, one that tipped it over onto its side by more than… Read More
Spin the control stick around in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction a lot then press A.
Cyclones in the northern hemisphere rotate counterclockwise.
it has a retrograde rotation.
It spins in the same direction as the Earth spins. That's counterclockwise, when viewed from above its north pole.
In the northern hemisphere cyclones spin counterclockwise. In the southern hemisphere cyclones spin clockwise.
All of the planets orbit the sun in the same direction. The axial rotation of each planet, the spin can vary though. Most spin in an anti-clockwise direction, but Venus and Uranus spin in a clockwise direction when viewed from above.
A vortex can spin either clockwise or counterclockwise.
All of the planets rotate anti-clockwise (counter clockwise), except for Venus and Uranus, which have a retrograde axial spin - they rotate clockwise when viewed from above their north pole.
What is a planet called that appears to spin counter clockwise from its north pole has a what type of a rotation?
This is known as prograde rotation, all of the planets spin in this direction apart from Venus and Uranus. Venus and Uranus spin clockwise when viewed from above the north pole, this is known as a retrograde spin.
Hurricanes spin clockwise in the Southern hemisphere. Hurricanes in the Northern hemisphere spin counterclockwise. Hurricanes in the Southern hemisphere are called cyclones.
On this planet, yes. On Venus, _IF_ we ever manage to terraform it, perhaps not. Venus rotates "retrograde" to the "normal"counterclockwise direction of spin which is the norm in this solar system.
Since this happens in three dimensions, it will actually spin clockwise, or counterclockwise, depending on the direction you are looking from - from the North Pole, or from the South Pole.
Viewed from a vantage point above the north poles of both the Sun and the Earth, the Earth orbits in a counterclockwise direction about the Sun. Similarly the Moon orbits the Earth in a counterclockwise direction. From the same vantage point, the Earth, Moon and Sun also rotate on their axes of spin in a counterclockwise direction.
Pluto,Uranus,Venus spin clockwise all of the rest spin counterclockwise
The vast majority of tornadoes in the northern hemisphere, including the U.S. spin counterclockwise. However on rare occasions clockwise tornadoes are observed.
Rockets don't have propellers - they're propelled by direction of exhaust gases through outlets.
Every planet in our solar system rotates counterclockwise except Venus and Uranus.
Uranus doesn't appear to spin on its side because it is clearly visible that it spins on its side.
The vast majority of tornadoes in the northern hemisphere spin counterclockwise. Most tornadoes in the southern hemisphere spin clockwise.
Yes. The vast majority of tornadoes in the northern hemisphere spin counterclockwise.
From the north, the earth's spin is anti-clockwise (counterclockwise). So is earth's orbit around the sun. _____________________________________ As seen from a position high above the North Pole, 90% or more of all the rotation in our solar system is counter-clockwise. The Sun, Earth, and Moon all spin counterclockwise. All of the planets and asteroids orbit in a counter-clockwise direction, as do most of the moons. It is likely (but impossible to know for certain) that… Read More
The ceiling fan should be set counterclockwise, so that the air from the fan blows downwards.
a planet that spins counter clockwise is said to have a retrograde rotation
becaus its gravity spin it counter clocckwise
yes, mercury does spin counter clockwise.
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.
The Moon orbits the Earth counterclockwise and it spins in the same direction at exactly the same time because it keeps the same face to the Earth as it orbits it. The " direction of spin" is as viewed from above Earth's North Pole.
Jupiter spins counter clockwise. To be exact, it spins counterclockwise when viewed from above the north pole. That's the same direction of spin as most of the planets, including Earth.
No. Most tornadoes in the northern hemisphere spin counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere. Most southern hemisphere tornadoes spin clockwise. There are also anticyclonic tornadoes, which spin in the opposite direction than is normal for their hemispheres. Only about .1% to 1% of tornadoes are anticyclonic.
Most of them spin counterclockwise
Tornadoes nearly always spin counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere with the exception of about 1% which are called anticyclonic tornadoes.
In the northern hemisphere a tornado usually spins counterclockwise, but it can spin clockwise as well, though such cases are rare. The opposite is true in the southern hemisphere. That's because the wind action that forms it operates independently of Coriolis forces. Coriolis forces are responsible for weather systems spinning counterclockwise around low pressure centers above the equator, and for the direction of rotation of hurricanes as well.
