Rigid Body moving around a Fixed Axis Definition

In the topic Rigid Body moving around a Fixed Axis, a rigid body is defined as an object that can rotate with all its parts locked together and without any change of its shape (in other words, the distance between two points on the object must remain unchanged during the rotation). A "fixed axis" means the object rotates about an axis that does not move, and ONLY 1 coordinate is needed to describe this kind of motion.
