Angle of rotation
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (August 2012)|
For example, the carts on a Ferris wheel move along a circle around the center point of that circle. If a cart moves around the wheel once, the angle of rotation is 360 degrees. If the cart was stuck halfway, at the top of the wheel, at that point its angle of rotation was only 180 degrees.
This is also referred to as the "order of symmetry."
