Suppose the moon rotated on it axis just as quickly as Earth. Would you still always see the same side of the moon from Earth?

1. Since this was not my area of expertise, I hesitated to answer.

Are you assuming that they are both rotating in the same direction?

However, my assumption is that, since the sizes of the planets are different, the same side would NOT always be seen from the earth.

3. I assume you mean by rotation, angular velocity, or period of rotation, and assuming you NEVER Moved.

IF you look up a night at the moon, and see point A, then in 24 hours, look up and see point A if the moon remains motionless. Nice. However, the moon is in orbit about the Earth, it is not sationary, so you are no longer directly below the point A, because the Moon is moved, so the center of the face you now see is Not point A, so the entire face you see is different because of the moon's orbit position change.
