Best Answer

The earth rotates 360o of longitude every 24 hours, so it takes 24 ÷ 360 hours to rotate 1o of longitude:

24 ÷ 360 hours = 24/360 hours

= 1/15 hours

= 1/15 x 60 minutes

= 4 minutes

The sun will cross 1o of longitude in the same time that the earth takes to rotate 1o of longitude, namely 4 minutes.

How long does it take the earth to rotate one degree?

It takes 24 hours to rotate 360 degrees so it takes one 360th of 24 hours to go through one degree. 4 minutes. It takes the earth 4 minutes to rotate one degree, since it takes 24 x 60 minutes to rotate 360 degrees. 24hrs. x 60 min/hr.= 1440 minutes/360 degrees. 1440 divided by 360 = 4 minutes/1 degree.
