 Axis of Rotation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-07)
Rotation around a fixed axis - The simplest three-dimensional case of rotation is rotation of a body about a fixed axis of rotation: each point of the body moves in a plane perpendicular to the axis, carrying out a circular motion, with the circle centered at the intersection of the plane and the axis.
Axis of rotation - In geometry, the axis of rotation of a rotating body is a line such that for every point of the body its distance to the line remains constant under the rotation, and the point remains in the same plane perpendicular to the axis.
Rotation - Rotation of a planar body is the movement when points of the body travel in circular trajectories around a fixed point called the center of rotation.

 WTR Rotation
Vertical-axis rotation is a primary mode of deformation that has become widely recognized in every type of tectonic environment, and at a variety of scales ranging from fault zone blocks to tectonic plates.
Rotation accommodates large amounts of plate boundary and intra-plate deformation and is an important process in the tectonic development of mountain belts, continental rifts, and transform boundaries.
Simple force balance considerations and comparison of torque applied to a rotating block indicate that shear forces applied to the base of the block are not strong enough to produce the motions and deformation observed at the surface.

 United States Patent Application: 0040092356
When the drive shaft is rotated, the gear arrangement is rotated about its own axis in response to drive shaft rotation and is rotated about the drive shaft's axis in accordance with the position of the friction disk.
Rotation of the drive gear is translated by the disk to control the speed and the direction of rotation of the driven gear dependent on the disk's position.
The differences in speed and direction of rotation of bevel gear 12 and the driven gear 50 result in forces being applied to the pinion gears 26 and 28 causing them to rotate as a unit about the axis of drive shaft 10 at the same time they are rotating about their own axes.

 Aeronautics - Flight Controls (THE AXES OF ROTATION) - Level 2
The axis that passes vertically through the center of gravity (when the aircraft is in level night) is called the vertical axis, and rotation about this axis is called yaw.
Since this motion is around the lateral axis, as the tail moves (pitches) downward, the nose moves (pitches) upward and the aircraft climbs.
The third axis which passes through the meeting point of the longitudinal and lateral axes from the top of the aircraft to the bottom is called the vertical or yaw axis.

 Rotation
Clearly, the plane of rotation of the point of application of force is perpendicular to the axis of rotation.
Often we find that a change in the orientation of the axis or alternatively the change in the distribution of mass with respect to axis of rotation, changes the requirement of external torque to produce a given angular acceleration.
For the rotation of a particle, we simulate a situation in which a particle like sphere of mass "m" is rotated by applying external force.

Rotation here won't be around one axis restricted to only one coordinate space as was the case before.
With 2D rotation around a point, whether it be in a fully 2D space or just within a single plane in a 3D space, you deal primarily with those three principal factors used previously, origin, angle and radius.
Recalculating a radius for each axis rotation is a chore and not something anyone should have to put up with (as we did earlier with the moving camera with panning example).

 The Parallel Axis Theorem
The swingweight of a racquet is measured by the Babolat RDC using an axis of rotation 10 cm from the butt.
Swingweight, also known as moment of inertia and rotational inertia, is the resistance to change in the speed of the rotation about the axis of rotation.
The distance of the mass center (balance point of the racquet) from the axis of rotation for the known swingweight is r, and the racquet mass is M.

 ROTATION
In describing the rotation of a rigid body we have to choose a reference line with respect to which the angle of rotation is being measured.
The direction of the velocity vector is parallel to the rotation axis and the right-hand rule needs to be used to determine whether the vector points upwards or downwards.
To derive this equation we have assumed that for rotations around a fixed axis the distance r from point A to the rotation axis is constant (independent of time) which is true for a rigid body.

 Earth’s rotation changing
For the most part, the Earth’s rotation speed and the direction of the axis are (nearly) constant because of the conservation of angular momentum.
The Earth’s rotation axis doesn’t point exactly along the axis of its angular momentum because it does have a tiny amount of lopsidedness to its distribution of mass.
And the moon creates an asymmetrical tug on the lopsidedness of mass, and also causes tides in the water, which have to slosh around and are a little offset from the direct pull of the moon.

 Rigid body rotation
It is possible to define an axis of rotation (which, for the sake of simplicity, is assumed to pass through the body)--this axis corresponds to the straight-line which is the locus of all points inside the body which remain stationary as the body rotates.
A general point located inside the body executes circular motion which is centred on the rotation axis, and orientated in the plane perpendicular to this axis.
Thus, in a rigidly rotating body, the rotation speed increases linearly with (perpendicular) distance from the axis of rotation.

 Earth's Rotation
As a large rotating mass, Earth acts like a gyroscope as it revolves around the Sun, that is, at every point along its orbit, its axis of rotation points toward the same fixed point in distant space.

 Changing a Planet's Rotation from Within
If the ice skater extends her arms in front, she'll continue to spin but her axis of rotation won't pass through the center of her body any more, so changes in axis location and orientation are possible, too.
The axis won't change its position radically because the angular momentum vector must still point in the same direction, and it can only do that if the asteroid and the Prince are rotating around an axis somewhere not far from the original axis (Note 2).
If our Little Prince were to sit for a long time somewhere off the pole, each wobble of the rotation axis would swing him a bit farther from the angular momentum axis, and slight frictional deformation of the asteroid would mean he wouldn’t return quite as close as he was on the previous wobble.
