What is the period of the rotation?
In astronomy, the rotation period of a celestial object is the time that it takes to complete one revolution around its axis of rotation relative to the background stars.
How many times faster does Jupiter rotate than the Earth?
Earth rotates once in 24 hours; Jupiter once in about 9.5 hours. The surface of Earth at the equator is rotating at about 1000 miles per hour, while Jupiter's equatorial cloud-tops are moving nearly 28,000 miles per hour.
