Lecture# Rotations: Formulas and Symmetries

Description

This lecture covers rotations in physics, including Poisson's formulas and the rotation of the position vector in a mobile frame. It also discusses symmetries in physics, such as time reversal, parity, and charge conjugation. The concepts of polar and axial vectors are explored, along with their behaviors under parity transformations.
