Period is defined as the time taken to make one rotation, revolution or oscillation.So how long does the Earth take to make one rotation on its axis?The answer is 24 hours.Note that the Earth takes 365.25 days to make one revolution around the sun.
Rotation is the time the Earth rotates once around it's axis - Day Revolution is the period it takes the Earth to revolve once around the Sun - Year
Rotation . . . . . the "Day" Revolution . . . . the "Year"
Period of rotation is the time taken to spin once around its axis Period of revolution is the time to orbit once around the Sun.
The differences between a planet's period of rotation and its period of revolution is that period of rotation talk about the length of time that an object takes to rotate once on its axis but period of revolution talks about the length of time that an objects take to rotate around the sun.
Period of rotation is the time taken for an object to complete exactly one revolution around another object, like the earth rotating around the sun or the moon rotating around the earth.
Rotation period is the time taken for planet to spin once on its axis. Revolution period is the time taken for planet to orbit the Sun once.
The same hemisphere of the moon always faces Earth. This is because the moon's rotation and revolution take the same amount of time.
That period of time doesn't describe any planet, but it does describe the earth's moon.
Rotation- 10 hours and 39 minutes Revolution- 29.5 Earth years
Let's say Michael Jordan (Is he still playing ? I never know.) Let's say Michael Jordan is walking around the arena spinning a basketball on the end of his finger. 'Rotation' is what the ball is doing on the end of his finger. The Earth's period of rotation is 1 day. 'Revolution' is what the ball is doing around the arena at the same time. The Earth's period of revolution is 1 year.
