Angular Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

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

formula

\(v_a = \frac { A_f \;-\; A_i } { t  }   \)

\(v_a = \frac { \Delta A } { t  }   \)

Where:

\(v_a\) = angular velocity

\(A_f\) = final angle

\(A_i\) = initial angle

\(\Delta A\) = angle differential

\(t\) = time
