The act of revolving, or turning round on an axis or a center; the motion of a body round a fixed point or line; rotation; as, the revolution of a wheel, of a top, of the earth on its axis, etc.
Return to a point before occupied, or to a point relatively the same; a rolling back; return; as, revolution in an ellipse or spiral.
The space measured by the regular return of a revolving body; the period made by the regular recurrence of a measure of time, or by a succession of similar events.
The motion of any body, as a planet or satellite, in a curved line or orbit, until it returns to the same point again, or to a point relatively the same; -- designated as the annual, anomalistic, nodical, sidereal, or tropical revolution, according as the point of return or completion has a fixed relation to the year, the anomaly, the nodes, the stars, or the tropics; as, the revolution of the earth about the sun; the revolution of the moon about the earth.
The motion of a point, line, or surface about a point or line as its center or axis, in such a manner that a moving point generates a curve, a moving line a surface (called a surface of revolution), and a moving surface a solid (called a solid of revolution); as, the revolution of a right-angled triangle about one of its sides generates a cone; the revolution of a semicircle about the diameter generates a sphere.
The cycle that normally takes a satellite around Earth.
The motion of an object around another.
the action by a celestial body of going round in an orbit or elliptic course;circle(see orbit)
The orbital motion of a body around its primary.
Movement of a planet around the Sun; more generally, orbital motion about a point.
The circling of an object about another object.
A rotation through a full circle, or 360 degrees.
The movement of a body around an external axis point. The Earth "revolves" around the Sun.
Orbital motion of one body about another, such as the Earth about the Sun.
The time during which the ISO satellite orbits around the Earth once (=24 hrs).
a single complete turn (axial or orbital); "the plane made three rotations before it crashed"; "the revolution of the earth about the sun takes one year"
To go around in an orbit.
The amount of time that it takes an object to go around, or orbit, another object. For the Earth to revolve around the Sun it takes 365 days (except on a leap year) and is commonly referred to as a year. (See Pinhole Camera Observatory)
A complete trip around the sun. The Earth revolves once a year.
The orbital motion of one body about another.
the movement in an orbit around another body
The orbiting of one body around another body, as the Moon revolves around Earth, and Earth revolves around the Sun.
Orbital motion about a primary.
The circling of one object around another, on an invisible path, like the earth revolving around the sun, and the moon revolving around the earth.
the orbital motion of one body around another body or a common center of mass
The motion of one body around another. The Earth takes one year to complete one revolution around the Sun.
the orbiting of one celestial body around another
Movement in a circle or a curve around some point.
The circling of a smaller object around a larger object.
the rotatory motion of a celestial body around another, along an elliptic or circular orbit.
The motion of one body around another (e.g. the motion of the planets in their orbit around the Sun).
the movement of one object around another.
The orbital motion of one object about another.
One complete orbit or cycle. In a natal chart, a planet's return to its natal degree upon completing a circuit of the map.
Orbital motion about a point located outside the orbiting body.
The orbital motion of one object around another. The Earth revolves around the Sun in one year. The moon revolves around the Earth in approximately 28 days.
