Angular velocity ( \(\theta\) ) (angular speed) is how quickly an object moves through an angle.

Angular Velocity Formula

\(\omega = \frac { \theta } { t  }   \)          \( angular \; velocity \;= \;   \frac { angle \; distance } { time }   \)         

\(\omega = \frac { \Delta A } { t  }   \)          \( angular \; velocity  \;=\;    \frac { change \; in \; angle \; displacement } { time  }   \)

Where:

\(\omega \) (Greek symbol omega) = angular velocity

\(\theta\) (Greek symbol theta) = angle distance

\(\Delta A\) = change in angle displacement

\(t\) = time
