Topic: Clockwise


  
  Clockwise and counterclockwise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A clockwise motion is one that proceeds 'like the clock's hands': from the top to the right, then down and then to the left, and back to the top.
Technically, the terms clockwise and counterclockwise can only be applied to a rotational motion once a side of the rotational plane is specified, from which the rotation is observed.
Typically, screws and bolts are loosened (moved towards the observer) counterclockwise and tightened (moved away from the observer) clockwise, in accordance with the right-hand rule.

A clockwise motion is one that proceeds 'like the clock 's hands': from the top to the right, then down and then to the left, and back to the top.
One mnemonic for remembering this is "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey" (right to tighten, left to loosen.) In trigonometry, and mathematics in general, plane angle s are conventionally measured counterclockwise.

 Why is clockwise Clockwise?
Clockwise and counterclockwise as we now know them seem to have derived from an accident of - as the real estate dealer said - location, location, location.
This left-to-right, or clockwise, movement, became so ingrained in the culture patterns of different peoples that their ancient rituals made 'good' magic by moving from left to right.
Before clocks were invented and the words 'clockwise' and 'counter-clockwise' were derived from the motion of the hand(s), the clockwise movement was called 'sunwise'.

I used to be able to go clockwise and get my fear level up by trying to ride two of the rock dropoff sections, now they are gone and you can actually clean all the switchbacks going up which to me is a joke.
I rode it clockwise first and had to go down a ton of switchbacks, which is just boring and then grind up the backside climb.

 Clockwise vs Counterclockwise : Fool Moon
I visualize a tall glass panel with a transparent clock on it, and the hands are moving quite rapidly in a clockwise direction.
Clockwise or counter-clockwise depends on which side of the clock we are staring at, the hands are always making their sacred circle, we are the ones who impose the concept of "direction" on the motion, and we are the ones who associate qualities with the direction we perceive.
Personally I would link clockwise (which only came into play as a concept once there were clocks, or was it sundials?) with righthandedness, dextrousity, "rightness".

As such, there may not be a distinct "clockwise order" which you can put them in.
Basically points ABC are in clockwise order if the right-hand vector perpendicular to AB is in the same direction as BC, that's to say, the angle between the normal of AB and BC is less than 90 degrees.
Of course if you know they already form a convex hull and are ordered EITHER clockwise or anticlockwise, all you need to do is test the first three points, and if they're the wrong way around, reverse them.

Finally, if you remove the thing that casts the shadow, replace the shadow by a clock hand, and put some machine behind it that makes the hand move at the right (constant) rate, then you have a clock: a mechanical device that keeps time and that resembles a sundial in the way you read it.
The hands of a clock move in what we now call the clockwise direction because shadows to the north of the equator, where modern clocks were invented and from where they spread around the world, move in that same direction.
The simplest of sundials is a straight stick that is planted vertically in a horizontal patch of ground.

Have over the years seen many connections where wire applied to devise in a counter clockwise wrap, opposite the clockwise tightening of screw.
ALWAYS wrap the wire around the screw in a clockwise direction, the same direction as the screw turn's to tighten.
A clockwise wrap will pull that wire in tight while counter clockwise may hold but will loosen up in time, especially if that devise is moved for future work.

 Discovery Online, The Skinny On ... Why Toilet Bowl Water Twirls Clockwise
OK, hold those thoughts: Either way you shove a block of air, from north to south, or south to north, it appears to be deflected to its right -- or clockwise.
The catch is that water floating at the north end of the bowl has a scidge less ground to cover per second; and the water hovering over the south end has a skidge more ground to cover.
So the water at the north gets a little bit ahead, the water at the south gets a little bit behind, and when you flush, the clockwise twirl comes to fruition.

This will enable the second runner to increase the angle in which the ball can be played to her as well as decreases the amount of time where her back is toward the player with the ball.
In summation, when the ball is on the left side of the field and the run is coming from the middle of the field, the second run should almost always be counter clockwise.
When the ball is on the right side of the field and the run is coming from the center the second run should almost always go clockwise.
