Center point

That is called the apothem. The definition is: An Apothem is the distance from the center of a regular polygon to the midpoint of a side

The center of the cartesian coordinate plane is called the origin and is located at the point (0,0), where the x and y axis meet.

Yes, it is. Circles that are in the same plane and having the same center are called congruent circles.

First of all, as long as we're in our comfortable familiar environment, "vertical" means toward or away from the center of the earth. When you start talking about things in space, the word "vertical" has no meaning. You might expect the earth's axis of rotation to be perpendicular to the plane of the earth's orbit around the sun. If that's what you expect, then you'll be disappointed. The axis of rotation makes an angle of about 66.5 degrees with the orbital plane.

At every 9 degree turn it will look the same then after 40 turns it will map back on itself.

If you can rotate (or turn) a figure around a center point by fewer than 360° and the figure appears unchanged, then the figure has rotation symmetry. The point around which you rotate is called the center of rotation, and the smallest angle you need to turn is called the angle of rotation. This figure has rotation symmetry of 72°, and the center of rotation is the center of the figure:

It is Anticyclones

Displacement is defined as moving of something from its position. Rotation is defined as the action of rotating around an axis or center. A geometrical figure can be displaced or rotated in either order to produce the same end result.

It depends on the degree of rotation, the farther off center it is the more value it has. Take it to a dealer or collector for an assessment.

In mathematics, the angle of rotation is a measurement of the amount, the angle, that afigure is rotated about a fixed point, often the center of a circle.For example, the carts on a Ferris wheel move along a circle around the center point of that circle. If a cart moves around the wheel once, the angle of rotation is 360 degrees. If the cart was stuck halfway, at the top of the wheel, at that point its angle of rotation was only 180 degrees.

To turn around a center point is called rotation. This is what the planets do around the sun in the solar system.

I think you mean the centrifugal force. That force points outwards from the center of rotation.

Yes. A tornado has a center of rotation.
