Earth Revolution diagram shows the revolution of the earth around the sun along its orbit. The amount of time it takes for a single trip around the sun is called a period of revolution. As the earth revolution diagram suggests, revolution is the movement of the Earth around the Sun. The Earth takes 24 hours to complete a rotation with respect to the Sun. The Earth takes a full year (365 days) for one complete revolution around the Sun. The Earth’s axis of rotation is tilted by 23.5 degrees. This tilt causes the different seasons of the year. As the Earth revolution diagram suggests, the gravitational pull of the Sun keeps Earth and the other planets in orbit around the star. Like the other planets, Earth’s orbital path is an ellipse, so the planet is sometimes farther away from the Sun than at different times.
