## Angular Velocity

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
