Does the earth spin in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction?

Looking down from above the north pole, it spins anticlockwise. It also orbits anticlockwise around the sun.


Would a tornado spin anti clockwise if it was sucking things in?

Tornadoes in the northern hemisphere spin anticlockwise apart from a very small percentage. However, tornadoes in the southern hemisphere spin clockwise. All tornadoes pull air in, regardless of the direction of rotation.


What way does Pluto spin around its own axis clockwise or anticlockwise?

That will entirely depend upon which pole you're standing on, just as the answer to the same question does on earth.


Do any planets spin clockwise?

Every planet can be observed to spin clockwise OR anticlockwise, whichever you prefer, by simply positioning yourself in space above the appropriate pole of the planet. Note: The usual convention is to consider the spin from an imaginary point high above the Earth's north pole. So, with that definition, all except 2 of the planets in our solar system spin counterclockwise, not clockwise. The 2 exceptions are Venus and Uranus. In fact, the spin axis of Uranus is almost in its own orbital plane, but it does (just about) spin clockwise on the usual definition.


Does the sun rotate earth clockwise or anticlockwise?

(Ans. 1) anticlockwise(Ans. 2) Yes, only if you're in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere the movement appears to be clockwise. Since there is no true UP or DOWN in space, you may pick whatever answer pleases you.Incidentally, the Sun does not spin or rotate the Earth. Our spin results from the angular momentum of all the pieces of matter that were assembled by mutual gravity to form the Earth.

What planets spin differently?

Venus and Uranus have a retrograde axial spin, they rotate clockwise when viewed from above their north pole. All of the other planets rotate anticlockwise (counter clockwise).


What direction does a helicopter's rotors spin?

Depending on the make of the helicopter, some will rotate clockwise and others will rotate counter-clockwise. However, the main rotor and tail rotor will spin opposite of each other. If the tail rotor spins clockwise, the main rotor will spin counter-clockwise. The main rotor also spins for lift, the tail rotor for control.
