Usage Examples English
  • Angular acceleration equals the torque acting on the body, divided by the body's moment of inertia with respect to the momentary axis of rotation. A change in torque results in angular jerk.
  • For example, a gyroscope uses the property that it resists any change in the axis of rotation.
  • The axis of rotation is usually vertical. In some cases, such as hinged garage doors, the axis may be horizontal, above the door opening.
  • A gentle nudge will knock it off its axis of rotation for a second, but it will not topple over because spin adds gyroscopic stability.
  • To improve usability and repeatability of movement of the crane in different takes, the axis of rotation arrows are provided with limbs and a pointer.
  • However, if neither the central object nor the surrounding ring were absolutely rigid then the parts of one or both of them would tend to fly out from the axis of rotation.
  • For positions on the Earth or other solid celestial body, the reference plane is usually taken to be the plane perpendicular to the axis of rotation.
  • The seasons occur because the Earth's axis of rotation is not perpendicular to its orbital plane (the plane of the ecliptic) but currently makes an angle of about 23.44° (called the obliquity of the ecliptic), and because the axis keeps its orientation with respect to an inertial frame of reference.
  • Pallas is unusual in that, like Uranus, it rotates on its side, with its axis of rotation tilted at high angles to its orbital plane.
  • This figure has four symmetry operations: the identity operation, one twofold axis of rotation, and two nonequivalent mirror planes.
  • A line connecting the two poles may be called the axis of rotation.
  • In other words, if the axis of rotation of a body is itself rotating about a second axis, that body is said to be precessing about the second axis.
  • Unlike the Robinson anemometer, whose axis of rotation is vertical, the vane anemometer must have its axis parallel to the direction of the wind and is therefore horizontal.
  • The conservation of angular momentum explains the angular acceleration of an ice skater as she brings her arms and legs close to the vertical axis of rotation.
  • If the axis of rotation of the neutron star is different from the magnetic axis, external viewers will only see these beams of radiation whenever the magnetic axis point towards them during the neutron star rotation.
  • The North Pole, also known as the Geographic North Pole or Terrestrial North Pole, is the point in the Northern Hemisphere where the Earth's axis of rotation meets its surface.
  • The primary reference points are the poles where the axis of rotation of the Earth intersects the reference surface.
