The dynamics of axial rotation can be described by a motion curve where the degrees of rotation are plotted on an x- and y-axis (Fig. 2–2). Because there is minimal rotation at O–C1, the head essentially moves with C1 during rotation, and the degree of head axial rotation is essentially the same as the degree of C1 rotation. This is plotted on the x-axis. The degree of rotation between C1 and C2 is plotted on the y-axis.
