# Angular Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

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

### Angular Velocity Formula

$$\large{ \omega = \frac { \theta } { t } }$$

$$\large{ \omega = \frac { \Delta A } { t } }$$

Where:

$$\large{ \omega }$$   (Greek symbol omega) = angular velocity

$$\large{ \Delta A }$$ = change in angle displacement

$$\large{ t }$$ = time

$$\large{ \theta }$$   (Greek symbol theta) = angle distance
