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

1. NO

we always see the same side of the moon because its rotational period is the same as its orbital period (about 28 days)

if the moon rotated every 24 hrs (like Earth), then you would see different parts of the moon during its orbit

the moon is moving along with it which means you'll see different parts of the moon

6. If the Moon rotated once in a day instead of once in 28 days we would see it rotating. The difference on the moon's surface would show just as quickly as the difference of where the sun is in the sky for us if it goes round once a day at the same speed the earth does. The bit of the moon we see would be changing all the time. So no, we won't be seeing the same side of the moon from Earth.

Does this make sense, or help anyone?

16. I, being an Astronomer, don't think so. The answer to your question is NO. LHLGJMTML, RJC, and Scott are accurate(completely correct). If the Moon rotated once in a day instead of once in 28 days we would see different parts of it, not just one little part like we normally see. The difference on the moon's surface would show quickly.The little piece of the moon we see would be changing all the time. We won't be seeing the same side of the moon from Earth.

17. No because if the moon rotated once a day instead of once in 28 days we will see the moon rotate from earth so we will never see 1 part of the moon
