Does the sun rotate the same direction as the world turns and tge wind?
- Ronald 7Lv 72 months agoBest answer
Yes it does and the Wind is Dictated by the Correolis Effect
You should look it up

The sun rotated counter clock wise when looking down at its North Pole. So does the earth. The earth and the sun’s North Pole point in a similar direction. Use the right hand rule. If your fingers curl in the same direction the earth is spinning, your thumb points up to where the North Pole points on your right hand.

The tge wind is that which keeps the Earth flat.

To look at the big picture, it has to do with mass and gravity. Even our galaxy.
At the center of our solar system, the mass, our sun, is trying to draw to it all the planets and orbiting objects like water to a drain. This sets up an effective force known as Coriolis that makes every smaller mass rotate about the largest mass.
Over the billions of years, these smaller masses fall into an ecliptic like a disc of spinning planets. A scientist named Kepler solved the notion of planet movement and angular momentum, why planets stay in their own orbits. No different with the planets that have moons, they orbit their host planet the same way, not different than how our sun orbits the center of the Milky Way.
Wind is more driven by convection, warm air rising and such, now back to Coreolis why winds eventually go into an easterly flow. Also why hurricanes rotate counterclockwise around a low pressure area, and water in a sink eventually starts to spin before going down a drain.

Yes, the Sun rotates at DIFFERENT rates in the same direction as planets revolve around the Sun, but NOT all the planets. Venus Uranus and Pluto rotate in the opposite direction. The Sun rotates fastest at the equator, 24+ to 28 days and slowest at the poles, 31 to 35+ days. Plasma is NOT solid. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_rotat...
Wind does NOT blow consistently from west to east.

The sun rotates in the same direction as the Earth rotates.
The wind on Earth is driven by temperature and pressure differences, the Earth's rotation has very little influence on the winds on Earth.

Except for your last bit about the wind, yes. Due to the Conservation of Angular Momentum, the vast majority of all rotation in the Solar System is in the same direction.
The Sun rotates in the same direction that all planets and asteroids orbit.
The planets (mostly) rotate in the same direction they orbit.
Moons (for those planets that have them), virtually all both orbit and rotate in the same direction their planets rotate.
Regarding the wind:
Because of the Coriolis Effect, for planets with atmospheres, the prevailing winds change direction as you move away from the equator.

"tge wind" ? what is this?
It rotates in the counterclockwise direction (when viewed from the north), the same direction that the planets rotate (and orbit around the Sun). The Sun's rotation period varies with latitude on the Sun since it is made of gas.

The sun turns in the same direction that the planets orbit (if you look from the Earth and Sun's "north pole" it's a counter-clockwise directly).
