This tool will calculate the new position of a point after rotating it around a given center by a specified angle.

**How to Use the Rotation Calculator:**

1. Enter the initial angle in degrees.

2. Enter the rotation angle in degrees.

3. Select the rotation direction (clockwise or counterclockwise).

4. Click the “Calculate” button.

The result field will display the new angle after rotation.

**How It Calculates the Result:**

The calculator takes the initial angle and adds or subtracts the rotation angle based on the selected direction.
If the rotation direction is clockwise, the rotation angle is added. If counterclockwise, the rotation angle is subtracted.
Angles are kept within the range of 0 to 359 degrees by applying modulo 360 arithmetic.

**Limitations:**

This calculator assumes the input angles are in degrees and only works with angles in the 0-359 degree range for initial angle and rotation.
No error handling for out-of-range or non-numeric inputs is implemented.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculating the Rotation Angle

Use the rotation calculator to determine the angle of rotation required to turn an object. Input the initial and final positions to instantly calculate the degree of rotation needed.

### Reversing a Rotation

If you need to reverse a rotation, simply enter the original rotation angle and subtract it from 360 degrees using the rotation calculator. This will give you the exact opposite rotation angle needed.

### Adding Multiple Rotations

To combine multiple rotations, input the individual rotation angles into the calculator and sum them up. The result will give you the total rotation angle needed to achieve the combined rotations.

### Calculating Rotational Symmetry

Determine the rotational symmetry of an object by dividing 360 degrees by the rotation angle using the calculator. The result will tell you how many times the object can be rotated to map onto itself.

### Measuring Rotational Speed

To find the rotational speed in degrees per second, input the rotation angle and time taken into the calculator. The output will give you the speed at which the object is rotating.

### Adjusting Rotation Direction

If you need to change the direction of rotation, use the calculator to add or subtract 180 degrees from the current rotation angle. This will switch the rotation direction accordingly.

### Checking Rotational Equivalents

Compare different rotation angles to find their equivalents by inputting them into the rotation calculator. This will help you understand how different angles relate to each other in terms of rotation.

### Calculating Rotational Inertia

To determine the rotational inertia of an object, input the mass and radius of gyration into the calculator. The output will give you the rotational inertia value, which is crucial in understanding the object’s resistance to rotation.

### Animating Rotational Motion

If you’re creating animations involving rotation, use the calculator to break down the rotation angles into keyframes. This will help you visualize and implement smooth rotational motion in your animations.

### Exploring Rotational Dynamics

Experiment with different rotation scenarios using the calculator to understand rotational dynamics better. By inputting various parameters, you can observe how different factors influence the rotation of an object.
