REVOLUTION (_plural_ REVOLUTIONS) * A political upheaval in a government or nation state characterized by great change. * The removal and replacement of a government. * Rotation: the turning of an object around an axis. * 1912, P. M. Heldt, _The Gasoline Automobile: Its Design and Construction, Volume II: Transmission, Running Gear and Control_, The Horseless Age Co. (1913), page 147: The ratio between the speeds of REVOLUTION of wheel and disc is substantially equal to the reciprocal of the ratio between the diameter of the wheel and the diameter of the mean contact circle on the disc. * A rotation: one complete turn of an object during rotation. * 1864, D. M. Warren, _The Common-School Geography_, Revised Edition, H. Cowperthwait & Co., page 6: The Earth has two motions: a daily REVOLUTION (or turning around) upon its _axis_, and a yearly course around the sun. * 1878, George Fleming, _A Text-Book of Veterinary Obstetrics_, Baillière, Tindall, & Cox, page 123: Numerous cases are recorded which incontestibly prove that during pregnancy, the uterus perform a half or even a complete REVOLUTION, on itself, producing torsion of the cervix […] * In the case of celestial bodies - the traversal of one body through an orbit around another body. * A sudden, vast change in a situation, a discipline, or the way of thinking and behaving. USAGE NOTES * Astronomers today do not use _revolution_ to refer to the turning of an object about an axis: they use _rotation_ for that, and _revolution_ only for the traversal of a body through an orbit (which also happens around some axis). (This may be somewhat customary, however, strictly speaking, using either word for either process would not be incorrect.)
