The rotation and revolution of Mercury is not the same as the Earth.
Rotation - 59 days Revolution - 88 days Woot Swagg _
The revolution of Mercury is 88 days, and its rotaion is about 58.6 days.
The period of rotation for Mercury around the Sunis 88 Earthdays. Actually, astronomers call this the "period of revolution".
IT IS not The same Period of rotation Because tthe mercury have rotation g9 days and the pluto have a rotation 6.4 days so it is not the same BY:JULLIA TUTANES :P
mercury is the first planet closest to the sun which makes it the hottest. its period of revolution is 88 days.
Rotation: 58.6 days, revolution: 88.0 days.
Mercury completes one revolution in about 88 Earth days. This is due to its slow rotation. Mercury is a terrestrial planet that is the nearest to the sun. A day on Mercury is about 58.5 Earth days.
Prograde. In our solar system, prograde is counterclockwise rotation or revolution. Retrograde is clockwise rotation or revolution.Clockwise and counterclockwise are "as viewed from above the Earth's north pole".All solar system planets have a prograde rotation except Venus and Uranus which have retrograde rotation.All the planets have prograde orbital motion (revolution) around the Sun.So, Mercury has prograde motion in both cases.
It takes Mercury 1407.6 Earth hours to make one full rotation around its axis.
The movement around the Sun is called "revolution", not "rotation". It takes Mercury 88 days for one revolution - almost three months.
Rotation on its axis takes about 58.6 Earth days and revolution around the Sun takes about 88 Earth days.
Mercury is the fastest revolving planet. The speed of a particular planet depends on its revolution around the sun as well as its rotation on its own axis. The fastest planet of the solar system with reference to revolution is Mercury. On the other hand, the fastest planet with reference to rotation is Jupiter.
Mercury has a oval rotation because of the suns gravity
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 of Mercury is equal to 1.5x the time it takes to make one full orbit around the sun. As a result, one day on Mercury is twice as long as one year on Mercury.
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
