In literature:

The moment of the structure, E C H, about its center of rotation was made equal to the moment of A C D about the center.
"Scientific American Supplement, No. 601, July 9, 1887" by Various
In a similar manner we find the rotational moment of momentum for each of the other planets.
"The Story of the Heavens" by Robert Stawell Ball
Searching problems and discussion are instigated at once, and the notion of rotational equilibrium and force moments brought in.
"College Teaching" by Paul Klapper

In poetry:

If Jove at that moment had hurled
The earth in some other rotation,
Along with your Julia whirled,
You had felt not the shock of creation.
"To A Moralist" by Friedrich von Schiller
Over the housetops,
Above the rotating chimney-pots,
I have seen a shiver of amethyst,
And blue and cinnamon have flickered
A moment,
At the far end of a dusty street.
"The Captured Goddess" by Amy Lowell

In science:

In presence of an electric field, they feel a quadratic Stark effect with a polarizability depending on the ratio between the electric dipole moment and the rotational constant.
Formation and interactions of cold and ultracold molecules: new challenges for interdisciplinary physics
The mentioned approximation is different from what we are calling the Ising regime, where the magnetic moment stays most of the time around the potential minima, but it is still in complete equilibrium, and performs a sufficiently large number of inter-potential-well rotations during a typical observation time.

These are the blocked particles, and contribute to χ′ (ω ) via the fast rotations of their magnetic moments inside the potential wells towards the transverse components of the field.
On the Statics and Dynamics of Magneto-Anisotropic Nanoparticles
BT /∆U = 0.4), the magnetic moment effects a considerable number of over-barrier rotations during the observation time interval, exhibiting almost the thermal-equilibrium distribution of orientations.
