Current Topic:
Rotation as a vector
Hi James007,
Yes, rotation cab be considered as a vector. Angular momentum is a clear example of rotation that we use vector notation. You can generate the vector by making a cross product of a vector entity by the radial distance to the axis of rotation. In case of angular momentum this means: L(->)=R(->)*P(->) where * represents cross product.
