As to the Moon thing, everyone, including Menow who wants to re-engage: the nomenclature for the total axial forward movement represented as if in one spot, is "spin on an axis". So yes, you and the astronomers are right in calling it that and imaging it that way.
Quoting: mclarek 971744

Except that it's not 'imaginary'. The Moon rotates... ON ITS AXIS.

But in order to understand the difference between the movement of Venus around the Sun and the movement of the Moon around the Earth, we must also talk of a spin around its axis (or lack thereof) RELATIVE TO ITS PATH.
Quoting: mclarek 971744

For the umpteenth time.. NO WE DON'T. A body's rotation is NOT altered by other motions. The Moon rotates relative to the background stars. Or do you think the universe is revolving around the Moon?

If none of the latter, then Venus and the Moon are clearly differing in what they're doing. And the term "spin around its axis" is also used for this phenomenon.
Quoting: mclarek 971744

There is NO difference between Venus and Moon's rotational motion, other than RATE. Period.

Since the phrase is used for both, but different aspects (levels of complexity or order of magnitude) are being described in each point we are making ... perhaps you will see the physical movement I wished to point out?
Quoting: mclarek 971744

The only complexity in this is in YOUR mind.

It is common, however, to conflate the movement on a path with the total movement around an axis and call it "turn" or "spin" or "rotation".
Quoting: mclarek 971744

No such 'conflating' has occured. They are separate motions. Only YOU are trying to confuse the two.

But "rotation" is also used to mean around another axis.
Quoting: mclarek 971744

NO IT'S NOT. That is called ******REVOLUTION*****.

GET IT?????????????

YET?????????????????????

And when something stands on the spot, and turns on the spot, this is also called "rotation", but usually "spin."
Quoting: mclarek 971744

Name an object, ANY object in the entire universe which "stands on a spot", Clare.

I was merely trying to speak of a different item than you; yet of course, you are using one accepted set of meanings for the phrase. And as such, it turns on its axis, given what perameters you are using, that is perfectly fine to say.

Best wishes,
Clare

(Menow-style mercy snip)

As to the words ... "Spinning"? "Rotating"? As we've found, these words can refer to two different actions.

What? I have seen no confusion between 'spin' and 'rotation'. The confusion has been with YOUR mixing up 'rotation' and 'revolution', and you have not had the courtesy to acknowledge the correction, though it was repeated several times.

Yes, he is "spinning" around the racetrack centre.

I stand corrected... Only YOU could make that sort of confused statement. No, he is NOT 'spinning' around the race track center. He could be said to be REVOLVING around it, but we should be careful in applying orbital terms to non-orbital situations.

So... with your confused language, I don't know WHAT you are saying there.

Quoting: Menow 935048

Yours does not handle this difference: mine can speak of what the Moon is doing even if it went straight.

Enough. Not going more into physical E-M momentum forces which make all this happen. The physical forces pull and push on the total body and spin it to accomplish the rotation. Yes.

However, it does not also have spin on it relative to its forward motion in total.

It turns on its axis as it moves forward, but does not spin in its own right relative to the movement forward in the new direction. We're both right, but describing different levels of the geometry.

On a force level, yes, the pull turns the axis as the momentum directs it straight away.

On a geometric level, there is another item we have to name: the possibility of a body to turn MORE than it is pulled forward on an orbit/turned on its axis around it on the orbit.

That is the spinning car on an orbital racetrack. And yes, I specified the racetrack was round.

It is this second type of "spin on its axis" geometrically which I am describing, a spin relative to the overall path the angular momentum physics cancels out at: the orbit.

More turn than it requires then a spin as I described can be seen.

Like Venus.

Now, PX. Any news?

Oh -- before you get picayune in your sneer tactics, about "turns the axis" I mean, of course, turns the body around it.

But the point is, equal to the overall orbital path turn to take. No more.

If more, then we observe what most people call spinning in its own right.

What word would you like to give that? Hm? Venus' motion. What would you call it.

I call it "spinning on its axis" ... as it "rotates" ...

But you like to call the turning of its body on the rotation a "spin on its axis" which is totally legitimate.

So what do you call what I am referring to? Or shall we just specify, as I started to long ago:

Venus: relative to its path, spin, but Moon no.

Venus AND Moon: relative to a straight line, spin, from forces, pulling it to make the path.

Hey, Commendator and Menow:

Since you are right it turns on its axis as it rotates,
what would you like to call the spin which Venus exhibits in addition to its orbital angular spin on its axis?

It is the latter I (and most people) call "spin on an axis" and it IS a separate and very real identifiable relationship of axis to path.

Would you say it just has more angle than momentum forward, instead of equal?

What would you like to call this, so we can agree there is a difference between the spin on the axis of the Moon from that of Venus?

They both spin on their axis in orientation around their orbits, but the latter one has a discernible extra spin while on its orbit.

Care to explain how a Venusian sidereal day thus lasts longer than a Venusian year (243 versus 224.7 Earth days). However, because of Venus's retrograde rotation, the length of a solar day on Venus is significantly shorter than the sidereal day?

Klunk back. I asked you what you would call the daily rotation around its axis, of Venus, when the Moon has not daily rotation around its axis while going around the Earth.

So, what would you want to call that motion? Daily rotation instead of "spin on its axis"?

But the car, hit on the circular racetrack, but tethered to the centre point (like gravity), would have a special spin relative to the road, as it goes forward on it. This is like the day of Venus.

So, what do you call it so it can talk of both the daily rotation AND a car spinning on its axis, relative to the spin it takes forward on its rotation as well?

YOU answer this. Or you don't show you get the point. Besides, I would love to know what you would like to call this level of understanding, what I called spin, but when any object has it. A car it would not be called "daily" (spin or) rotation, as a planet would get called.

So, when you get off your cock-sure-nasty meds, please answer me what you would like to call this, so it applies to all bodies.

What do you want to call the type of movement, which in a planet is called daily rotation around its axis, when it's not happening in a planet? It is THIS which I called spin on its axis relative to its path, which in planets is a closed path (ellipse, close to a circle), but can also happen to something standing in place (relative to other fixed points), or on any path, straight, wave, or whatever.

What gets me is that the only viewpoint that the moon doesnt `spin' is from the earths surface, and that same viewpoint also shows that the sun rotates around the earth!!!

Stand on either of the moons axis points and the starfield clearly rotates
Stand on any point on the moon that receives sunlight and there will be a `sunrise' and `sunset'as the moons rotation causes an apparent rotation of the sun around the moon...

I was able to explain this to an eight year old, and she readily grasped the concept that not only was the moon spinning, but its spin rate had to be the same as its orbital period in order to show the same face to the earth at all times (didn't use words that big, but she readily grasped the concept when shown with a tennis ball and basket ball)
She even grasped the idea that if the moon didn't spin on its axis then it would indeed have a `dark side' and a `light' side (fun games can be had with a torch or table lamp and a basket ball and a tennis ball- we even managed to have an `eclipse' on the basketball/earth)

What is the proper technical term for a planets motion around its parent star?

No, Smarmee,

YOU answer. We have finally come to the point and you deflect.

What name for the motion of spin with no other motions considered, would you like to give?

I won't let you wiggle out of the question.

I have in fact identified the difference, and you wiggle out!

Do you even have a term you'd like to use, Smarmee?

See, I have itdentified that the motion needs identifying.

The terminology, "spin, rotation, turn" is used for BOTH your orbital path orientation of a body AND the action I have identified.

SO, the confusion here is yours, on this issue.

Name the item I identify. It is now clear it's different in relation to points at rest (relative), and you try to ignoe, saying I don't get deflected onto your other points, Smarmee.

Quoting: Anonymous Coward 763624

So, the fact that from ABOVE the rotation around the Earth, the Moon shows no other face to it doesn't make sense to you?

And if it did, would you understand the difference?

Venus shows rotation (daily) to the Sun. The Moon does not to the Earth.

The fact the Moon "only" shows one face to the Earth is a CRITICAL DIFFERENCE in the type of motion it exhibits.

If the Earth were the Sun, and the Moon were a planet, it would be different ...

So, see the difference? Or are you unable to realize relative motion is the key point here: to the Sun, Venus shows different faces, as does the Moon. But the Moon does not to the Earth.

Gobbledygook from a clunk? Or key perceptual difference?

In order to assess the difference, stop the Moon in forward motion and would the amount it turns be more than its forward motion required? No. Hence, no spin on the body except through forward "steps" along the path.

Venus spins MORE than its orbital path steps require. It spins on another level of understanding. The Moon does not.

"What I meant when I said this, "If the Earth were the Sun, and the Moon were a planet, it would be different ..." I mean different than Venus, in showing different faces to the Sun.

When you say that only from the Earth we notice that the Moon shows one face, and then bring in how the Sun seems to go around us, you are showing you do not understand the differences in peception all this requires. We can't compare apples and oranges, so to speak, here. The view of the Sun from the Earth is another motion relationship.

So...
If the Moon were going around the Sun as if the Sun were the Earth, and Venus were orbiting too around the Sun, Venus would show different faces to the Sun and the Moon would not.

And in this example, since the Sun is like the Earth in our comparison, the centre of the GALAXY would be seen to go around the Sun, from the Sun's viewpoint, just as the Sun seems to go around the Earth from the Earth's viewpoint.

My point is, from this mind experiment: Venus would show faces to the Sun and the Moon would not. Other outlying bodies (Sun, for Earth's viewpoint, and Galaxy centre for Sun in Sun's viewpoint) is a confusion of what motions we were discussing, and what is important.

The Moon always shows its face to WHAT IT ORBITS.

Refusing to look into the evidence on PX, no matter who brings it forward, or how unlikely you consider the postulate, is inadequate to actually having done due diligence.

So, is there a PX? Does the Vatican leak show it? Or the round-flare SOHO show it? Or what is going on with the damned magnetosphere -- magnetic fields don't just repel without another source, and NASA says it wasn't the Sun, because that was attracting us and giving more particles than usual, because the breaches from repulsion allowed even more attraction particles in from the Sun.

What is repelling us?

Nope, lets deal with your lack of understanding of lunar rotation before we go on to other subjects.

Serious suggestion: Get a copy of Physics for Dummies and Astronomy for Dummies. Read them until you understand them both. Then we can talk about more advanced topics.

Nope; let's deal with your lack of the difference between lunar rotation spin vs lunar spin around its rotation direction!

Or are you just deliberately being difficult?

And refusing to handle PX ... :)

Clare, you have yet to address ANY of my thought experiments. Why is that?

it's that tenth word
(hey planet x- planet 10, tenth word....)

you used the word `thought' and that is an autoban word for any zetatard brain...

`thought experiments' means that you must think that they can `thought' in the first place....

what a strange and interesting concept it would be if they ever did indulge in `thought'

(I would love to be a thought reading fly on the wall at that place and point in time....)

Clare should ask Andrew about his bedroom habits. You are proud of your self-pleasure routine, are you not, Andrew? I mean, you did create an entire thread devoted to them not so very long ago.

And Clare, the Moon does indeed rotate about its north-south axis. No amount of misuse or terms and stupid analogies on your part will negate this simple fact.

You are either an expert troll or a complete dumbass.
