How Do You Compare Rotation and Revolution?

Answer

Rotation is the turning of an object by an angle about a fixed point. During rotation the rotating body doesn't change its position, only angle changes. Revolution is the circular motion of a body in a circular path with a fixed center. During revolution, the body changes its position, come backs to its initial position and changes again. Our earth revolves around the Sun in a nearly circular orbit (actually an elliptical orbit). One revolution is completed in 1 year. Earth rotates about an axis passing through its center. One rotation is completed in 1 day.
