Why Does the Sun Rotate?

-- Johnny | February 9, 2020


Why does the sun revolve around its axis like the Earth?
Earth rotates around its axis due to the sun, but what is the reason for the sun rotating around its axis?
I hope physicists and innovators will seek to launch a device that explores the causes of the sun’s rotation around its axis around

The rotation of the Sun is due to conservation of angular moment.  What this means is that the gas cloud from which the Sun formed had some residual angular momentum that was passed-on to the Sun when it formed, which gives the Sun the rotation that we observe today.
