How to use "Spins" in context?

Spins, or revolutions around an axis, have profound effects on the motion of objects. In its simplest form, a spin is a rotation around a single axis. More complicated spins include turns and somersaults.

Each spin has an affect on the objects it affects. A spin around a vertical axis causes an object to rotate on an axis perpendicular to the original one. A spin around a horizontal axis causes the object to rotate on the original axis.

Spins also determine the objects' speed. Spins that produce a great deal of torque or twisting cause an object to move faster than those that don't.
