Types of motions of Earth

Rotation: Movement of the earth on its axis

Revolution: Movement of the earth around the sun in a fixed path or orbit; It takes 3651⁄4 days (one year) to revolve around the sun.

Due to the spherical shape of the earth, only half of it gets light from the sun at a time.

There are days and nights and changes in the seasons because of the rotation and revolution of the earth respectively.

DAYS & NIGHT = ROTATION
SEASONS = REVOLUTION
