Rotation around a fixed axis or about a fixed axis of revolution or motion with respect to a fixed axis of rotation is a special case of rotational motion. The motion of a rigid body which takes place in such a way that all of its particles move in circles about an axis with a common angular velocity; also, the rotation of a particle about a fixed point in space. This chapter explains the way in which rotational motion may be described analytically for bodies undergoing pure rotation. Prepare to have your mind blown in this episode of Crash Course Physics where Shini delves. The motion of a rigid body which takes place in such a way that all of its particles move in circles about an axis with a common angular velocity; also, the rotation of a particle about a fixed point in space. Purely rotational motion occurs if every particle in the body moves in a circle about a single line.
