## What is a rotation in geometry?

A rotation is a type of transformation that takes each point in a figure and rotates it a certain number of degrees around a given point. The result of a rotation is a new figure, called the image.

## What is rotation also called?

While revolution is often used as a synonym for rotation, in many fields, particularly astronomy and related fields, revolution, often referred to as orbital revolution for clarity, is used when one body moves around another while rotation is used to mean the movement around an axis.

## What is an antonym for rotation?

rotation. Antonyms: simultaneity, perpetuity, constancy, non-intermittence, contemporaneousness. Synonyms: turn, series, order, succession, revolution, course, reversion, recurrence.

## What is the synonym of rotation?

circle. verb go around, circumnavigate. begird. belt. cincture.

## How do you describe a rotation in math?

Rotation turns a shape around a fixed point called the centre of rotation. Rotation is an example of a transformation. A transformation is a way of changing the size or position of a shape. The shape has been rotated 90° (a quarter turn) clockwise about the centre of rotation.

## How do you describe rotation in math?

A rotation is a transformation that turns a figure about a fixed point called the center of rotation. An object and its rotation are the same shape and size, but the figures may be turned in different directions.

## How do you describe rotation?

A rotation is a turn of a shape. A rotation is described by the centre of rotation, the angle of rotation, and the direction of the turn. The centre of rotation is the point that a shape rotates around. The direction of rotation can be described as clockwise (CW) or counterclockwise (CCW).

## Is rotating and spinning the same?

As nouns the difference between rotation and spin is that rotation is (chiefly|uncountable) the act of turning around a centre or an axis while spin is circular motion.

## What are anatomical terms movement?

Anatomical terms of motion are used to describe the actions of muscles. All body movement, which is caused by muscle contraction, is classified by the directions in which the affected structures are moved.
