Difference in the length of days

The length of days is different at different points of universe:


He arranges [each] matter from the heaven to the earth; then it will ascend to Him in a Day, the extent of which is a thousand years of those which you count…..Quran32;5

We are accustomed to thinking of a day as a period of 24 hours. However, that definition is a narrow one that only applies to our own planet. A day is the length of time it takes for a planet to complete one rotation on its axis – 360°. Since all of the planets rotate at different speeds, the length of a day on each one differs.
Mercury has a very long day. A day on Mercury takes 58 days and 15 hours in Earth days
A day on Venus is 243 Earth days. 

Jupiter is the largest planet, and it also has the shortest day. It takes Jupiter only 9.9 Earth hours to complete a rotation

A day on Uranus only takes 17 hours 14 minutes and 24 seconds
