QUESTION 0030:
When do I write a circle and when do I write a curved
arrow?
ANSWER 0030:
Example 0030 shows that rotations are curves too, but
they do not travel.
EXAMPLES 0030
Rotation symbols stay in one place and rotate in the
direction of the curve. There are four possible rotations
to a circle. When you see a line going through the curved
arrow you know it is a rotation. The line represents the
axis around which the rotation revolves.
