That is how we define a day. On Earth the period of rotation is around 24 hours = 1 Earth Day. On Jupiter, something over 9 hours = 1 Jovian Day.

Assuming that this is a question about Astronomy, the answer would be "day" or, more exactly, "sidereal day".

anu way the answer is PERIOD OF ROTATION! hope i helped.

It rotates once in 27.32 days - the same time that it takes to orbit once around the Earth - which is why it always looks the same from Earth.

It takes one day for the Earth to rotate once on its axis. It takes about 365.25 days for the Earth to travel (orbit) once around the Sun.

The "day" on Mars, the time it takes for one complete rotation, is about 24.62 Earth hours.

A day is the period it takes an object to rotate once on it's axis.

It takes 23 hrs 56 min to rotate once relative to a distant object like a star. It takes an extra 4 minutes to rotate once relative to the Sun because we are also in an orbit round the Sun.

Mercury. Its takes around 58.65 days to rotate once on its axis relative to background stars.

Venus takes approximately 243 Earth days to rotate just once!

Venus.

Yes it does. This means we always see the same side of the moon facing Earth.

0.345, it takes the sun 27 days to rotate on its axis once.
