What are Geometric Rotations? Mathematically, the geometric transformation is a function with range and domain as a known set of points. In simpler terms, it is defined as making changes in any geometric structure. There are four types of transformation, namely: Reflection: Flipping the object about the line of reflection. Translation: Moving the object without rotating and altering its size. Rotation: Spinning or rotating the shape about a specific point. Dilation: Altering the size of the object without changing its essential shape. Below we have elaborated on the rotation, one of the rigid geometric transformations. In this type of geometric transformation, the shape or the figure moves about a particular point. The amount of rotation or movement about a point is measured in degrees. If your measurement is in positive degrees, then rotation is performed counterclockwise. And if your measurement is in negative degrees, then rotation is performed in a clockwise direction. Rotation doesn’t change the shape or size of the figure, but it will change the direction of the figure. The figure present before rotation is performed known as the preimage. The figure obtained after the rotation is known as the image. Rotation is typically written like: R (center, rotation), where rotation is mentioned in degrees, and the center indicates the point of rotation.
