Saturn has the second fastest spin out of the eight planets, after Jupiter. It takes 10 hours and 14 mins to make one full revolution on its axis. It takes 29.44 years to orbit the sun once.

the rotation of Saturn is counterclockwise.

The rotaion takes 10 hours and 14 minutes and the revolution takes 29.5 Earth years.

Saturn rotates on its axis pretty fast - in about 10.5 hours. It takes about29.5 Earth years to orbit the Sun once (period of revolution).

Time Span for the Revolution of SaturnThe term Revolution describes one elliptical rotation (a 360 degree rotation, aka a big circle) around the Sun. My science book says that Saturn takes approximately 29.456 Earth years to revolve around the Sun, which is one Saturn year and each Saturn day is 10.2 Earth hours. These are my own words, I only took numbers.

the rotation time for saturn is 48 hours.

Saturn does not orbit the moon, it orbits the sun. This is called its revolution, not its rotation. Saturn's period of rotation on its axis is 10 hours 33 minutes. Its period of revolution around the sun 29.45 years.

what is Saturn rotation

no they arent rotation on the sun

Saturn has a "rotation" around it's own axis. It has a "revolution" around the Sun.Saturn's "period of revolution" around the Sun is about 29.5 Earth years.See related questions.

The revolution of Enceladus around Saturn takes 1.37 Earth days, or one day, 8 hours and 53 minutes. Its revolution and rotation times are the same.

Saturn rotates very fast and is able to complete one rotation in approximately 10 hours. Saturn, which was named after the Roman God, is the sixth planet from the Sun.

That's called the "revolution period" by astronomers. For Saturn it's about 29.5 Earth years.

rotation-planets on axis revolution-planets in orbit

rotation of a planet; rotation is movement of the planets around its own axis revolution of planet; revolution is movement of the planets around the sun

Rotation:17.24 hours Revolution:165 years

rotation is how an object spins on its axis and revolution is when it goes around an object

The rotation and revolution of Mercury is not the same as the Earth.

Jupiter, Saturn Uranus and Neptune all complete one rotation in less than a day.

revolution-is the revolving of an object around another object. rotation-is the spinning of an object on its axis. revolution and rotation are two different concepts but, are alike in some way. Rotation- Dominic

Rotation . . . . . the "Day" Revolution . . . . the "Year"

A revolution is one year; a rotation is one day.

Earth:Rotation = nearly 24 hoursRevolution = about 365.24 daysMoon: Rotation and Revolution are equal. Both = 27.32 days

Rotation is difference with revolution because rotation is like the planets spin on an axis. And revolution is like the planet revole around the sun.

The rotation periods are (in days) Jupiter: 0.41354 Saturn: 0.44401 Uranus: 0.71833 Neptune: 0.67125 Jupiter takes 11.8 yrs to complete one revolution. Saturn takes 29.5 yrs to complete one revolution. Uranus takes 84 yrs to complete one revolution. Neptune takes 164.8 yrs to complete one revolution.
