• Angular momentum
In physics, angular momentum (rarely, moment of momentum or rotational momentum) is the rotational analog of linear momentum.
• Centrifugal force
In Newtonian mechanics, the centrifugal force is an inertial force (also called a 'fictitious' or 'pseudo' force) directed away from the axis of rotation that appears to act on all objects when viewed in a rotating reference frame.
• Coriolis force
In physics, the Coriolis force is an inertial force (also called a fictitious force) that acts on objects that are in motion relative to a rotating reference frame.
• Rotation period
In astronomy, the rotation period of a celestial object is the time that it takes to complete one revolution around its axis of rotation relative to the background stars.
• Rotation
A rotation is a circular movement of an object around a center (or point) of rotation .
• Circular motion
In physics, circular motion is a movement of an object along the circumference of a circle or rotation along a circular path.
• Stellar rotation
Stellar rotation is the angular motion of a star about its axis.
• Rotation around a fixed axis
Rotation around a fixed axis is a special case of rotational motion.
• Centripetal force
A centripetal force (from Latin centrum, "center" and petere, "to seek") is a force that makes a body follow a curved path.
• Absolute rotation
In physics, the concept of absolute rotation—rotation independent of any external reference—is a topic of debate about relativity, cosmology, and the nature of physical laws.
• Relativistic angular momentum
In physics, relativistic angular momentum refers to the mathematical formalisms and physical concepts that define angular momentum in special relativity (SR) and general relativity (GR).
• Rigid rotor
The rigid rotor is a mechanical model that is used to explain rotating systems.
• Mechanics of planar particle motion
This article describes a particle in planar motion when observed from non-inertial reference frames.
• Rotation formalisms in three dimensions
In geometry, various formalisms exist to express a rotation in three dimensions as a mathematical transformation.
