Returns the rate at which the device is rotating around each of its axes in degrees per second.

var rates = instanceOfDeviceMotionEvent.rotationRate;
rotationRates property is a read only object describing the rotation rates of the device around each of its axes:

- The rate at which the device is rotating about its X axis; that is, front to back.
