Double bond rotation

Why do double bonds restrict rotation around an atom?

Restrict rotation..?
I don't think I get what you mean, but I do believe that if you're talking about the electron's rotation around the atom, a double bond would restrict that electron's movement since the double bond would be a lot stronger than a regular, single bond. Therefore, your electron's rotation would be restricted somewhat, in comparison to a single bond.

Not quite sure what is meant by this either, but if you are referring to electrons being locked in locations around an atom and being restricted from moving around, double bonds are much stronger than single bonds and the electrons involved in the bond are held more tightly.
