If you mean a jump, it could refer to any of the 360 degree rotation jumps (single salchow, toe-loop, loop, flip, or lutz). If you mean a turn without leaving the ice it could be a single rotation twizzle (a turn that rotates and travels down the ice continuously on one foot) or, if it's on two feet: a turn that is generally referred to simply as a "360". Hope this answered your question.

There are several different "360" turns in figure skating (flip, loop, lutz, toe-loop). What makes them different from one another is whether or not the jump is generated from jumping off of just the blade, the skaters toe pick, the edge the blade is on and whether or not the jump takes off with the skater skating forwards or backwards.

It's a jump where you rotate one time around, hence the "full turn"

How do you find the smallest angle of rotational symmetry for a figure?

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:

How do you stop in figure skating and skiing?

In figure skating, there are a bunch of ways to stop. The most common ones are the T-stop, and Hockey stop. To do the T-stop, you put your feet like a backwards T (whichever foot is most comfortable for you) and angle your back foot so that you stop. The hockey stop seems somewhat easier; to do this, you must turn your foot (again, whichever is easier) to the side and slightly angle it.

How can you get the figure skating axle?

Well generally you have to be a freestyle 3 figure skater in order to be able to do this jump... but after learning the waltz jump and salchow, you should know how to dig in your toepick to jump. To wind up, you are basically just skating(backwards) with your good leg extended behind you, and dig it in and turn counter-clockwise while bringing your arms in towards you leaving the ice with your legs together like in a scratch spin. Land with your bad leg extended behind you...

Figure skating jump incorporating midair turns?

Forward turning jump is called an Axel. It was named after the inventor Axel Paulson who first performed it in 1882. Skating before that time was a two footed pass time that did not leave the ice. If you mean whether there are jumps that turn in both direction in the air ... kinda. Todd Eldgredge used to do one that turned about 1/4 revolution each way. I believe you can see it in his 92 Olys LP; don't really remember.
