2-14 Pole A, whose coordinates are 20°N, 50°E, is to be rotated about the axes described below. In each case, find the coordinates of the final position of pole A and show the path traced out during its rotation. a) 100° rotation about the NS axis, counterclockwise looking from N to S. b) 60° rotation about an axis normal to the plane of projection, clockwise to the observer. c) 60° rotation about an inclined axis B, whose coordinates are 10°S, 30°W, clockwise to the observer. Solution a ) This rotation of 100° causes pole A to rotate into the lower hemisphere of the projection sphere after 40°, so its “negative” pole reappears to complete the remaining 60°, as shown below. Final location: 20°S, 30°W. A A’ PROBLEM 2-14 B.D. Cullity and S.R. Stock, Elements of X-Ray Diffraction, 3 rd Ed., Prentice Hall, (2001) MSE 104 Materials Characterization Professor R.

b ) This rotation of 60° is simply done by spinning about a pin through the center, shown below. Final location: 27°S, 48°E. A A’ 60° PROBLEM 2-14 B.D. Cullity and S.R.

c ) Rotation about an inclined axis requires that the rotation axis be moved into a useful orientation. That makes this solution a three-step procedure. First, move the rotation axis to the center of the stereographic projection, which makes the rotation axis normal to the page. This is done by rotating the Wulff Net (shown dimmed here) to put pole B on the equator.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
