    Talking 70-revolve vs orbit

    Dear all


    Can we suppose (revolve) a synonym for (orbit)?
    If so, what differences do they have in place of occurrence?

    Thanks a million

    We can use revolves for orbit, but we can't always use orbit for revolve- a DVD revolves, but it doesn't orbit because it turns around itself and not something else.
