Best Answer

1). The day would be shorter than 24 hours. 2). There would be more days in a year. 3). Areas of atmospheric high- and low-pressure would be more pronounced, with higher winds and more active weather systems surrounding them. 4). Theoretically, all objects would appear to weigh less than they do now. #1, #2, and #3 would be very noticeable. #4 would not be very noticeable unless the earth rotated MUCH faster than it does now. Some possible effects that are "farther out": -- increased earthquake and volcanic activity, and changes in terrestrial magnetic field behavior, over geologic time periods, due to modified internal heat generation and distribution caused by increased tidal friction; -- increased rate of rotational de-celeration, also due to increased tidal effects; -- increased rate of expansion of the moon's orbital distance, due to accelerated rate of exchange of angular momentum within the 2-body system.

What if anything would happen to the shape of the earth if it were to rotate on its axis faster than it does today?

What if anything would happen to the shape of the earth if it were to rotate on its axis faster than it does todayWell ladies and gentlemen


What would happen if Earth did not rotate?

If the Earth didnโ€™t rotate, it would lose its magnetic field, which means it would lose its atmosphere and radiation would rain down from space.


What would happen if the earth did not rotate around the sun would the earth still have its seasons?

No


What would happen if Earth would not rotate on its axis?

it means 2012 will happen! you cannot hide! We are doomed!


What would happen if the earth spun faster?

if the earth spun faster we would have shorter days. if the earth orbited around the sun faster we would have a shorter year.


How will the Earth rotate without moon?

The Earth's rotation is not dependent on the Moon; without the Moon, the Earth would still rotate. However, the Moon's gravitation gradually slows down Earth's rotation, so without the Moon, it is possible that Earth would now be rotating faster.The Earth's rotation is not dependent on the Moon; without the Moon, the Earth would still rotate.

What would happen if the earth does not rotate?

Seasons would stop. There would be no change in day or night.


What happen if earth rotate clockwise?

instead of everything getting older it would get younger


What would happen if the earth took longer to orbit around the sun?

As the Earth does not rotate evenly, but rather at a tilt, the seasons would be skewed.


What would happen if the earth rotates faster?

Measurements of time would become shorter, and the seasons would occur faster.


What will happen to the weight of the object if the earth were to rotate faster than its present speed?

The apparent force of gravity on earth is not the same all over, the spin of the earth means that you weigh less at the equator than at the poles, due to the centripetal force from the earths spin. You will weigh about 0.3% less at the equator. If the earth spun faster still, this difference would be even more apparent.


What will happen if the earth starts to rotate and revolve in the opposite directions?

The season progression would reverse.


What would happen if the earth rotated faster?

We wouldn't live because the wind speed of the Earth would be too great.


What will happen to the earth's gravity if there was no other planets?

The earth would only rotate the sun because the sun is a star so only stars and meteors would be left.


What whould happen if you had no moon?

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)


What would happen to the length of a day if earth rotated more quickly?

The day would shorten- night would come faster and day would come faster.


Earth's period of rotation became faster what would happen on?

23,934 hours


What would happen if earth began to rotate twice?

Actually I dont know, but I guess the rate of everything happeningnow would be twice as fast.


What will happen if the earth started rotating faster?

It would effect the earth's electromagnetic field as it is the spinning of the earth's core that creates the field.


If earth did not rotate would there be day and night?

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.


If the earth didn't spin what would happen?

Hmm, i assume you mean what would happen if the earth didn't rotate on its axis, since your question could also be taken as "what would happen if the earth didn't orbit the sun." Now, if the Earth didn't rotate there would be no magnetic field, this is because this field is generated by the difference in the rotation speeds of the Earth and its core. Without this field the Earth would have no protection against the solar winds/flares which would basically microwave the surface of the Earth. Besides that, with out rotation you would see no seasons since the seasons depend on both rotation of the Earth and its orbit. There would be months inbetween dawn and dusk instead of just hours. And many other things besides. Now, what would happen if the Earth didnt orbit the sun. Basically, without the orbit to counterbalence the gravity of the sun the earth would sink into it and burn up. NEXT!


What would happen to the length of day if the earth took 40 hours to rotate?

In that case, the length of the day would also be approximately 40 hours.


Why does the earth have only 24 hours in a day?

Because it takes planet earth 24 hours to completely rotate on it's axis. If it were any faster or slower, we would be able to feel the earth itself spinning.


What would happen when the earth is rotating?

What do you mean? Earth rotates already. And u can see the stuff that happens. When the Earth is rotating the same things happen as are happening now (presumably). However, should the earth rotate, gardeners (among others) would become very dizzy!


If you could suddenly shrink the Earth make the Earth smaller in radius but keep the same mass the length of the day would increase decrease or stay the same?

The length of the day would decrease because of conservation of momentum principle - Earth would rotate faster when shrinked.
