## What are the types of rotation in geometry?

Rotation Formula

Type of Rotation | A point on the Image | A point on the Image after Rotation |
---|---|---|

Rotation of 90° (Clockwise) | (x, y) | (y, -x) |

Rotation of 90° (Counter Clockwise) | (x, y) | (-y, x) |

Rotation of 180° (Both Clockwise and Counterclockwise) | (x, y) | (-x, -y) |

Rotation of 270° (Clockwise) | (x, y) | (-y, x) |

## What are some examples of rotation?

An example of rotation is the earth’s orbit around the sun. An example of rotation is a group of people holding hands in a circle and walking in the same direction.

**What is an example of a rotation?**

Rotation is the process or act of turning or circling around something. An example of rotation is the earth’s orbit around the sun. An example of rotation is a group of people holding hands in a circle and walking in the same direction.

**What is the rule of rotations?**

Here are the rotation rules: 90° clockwise rotation: (x,y) becomes (y,-x) 90° counterclockwise rotation: (x,y) becomes (-y,x) 180° clockwise and counterclockwise rotation: (x, y) becomes (-x,-y) 270° clockwise rotation: (x,y) becomes (-y,x)

### What is a real life example of rotation?

Planets are not the only round objects that rotate. Amusement park rides, such as Ferris wheels or carousels, also rotate. The Ferris wheel rotates around a horizontal axis, and the carousel rotates around a vertical one. Wheels on a car rotate around a strong horizontal bar called an axle.

### What are the 10 examples of rotational motion?

Examples of Rotary Motion

- Rotation of Earth. As the name itself suggests, the motion of the earth and other planets about their respective axis is an example of rotatory motion.
- Wheels of a Moving Vehicle.
- Fan Blades.
- Helicopter Rotor Blades.
- Spinning Top.
- Ferris Wheel.
- Gears.
- Clock Ticking.
