Angular Displacement

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Angular displacement is the angle through which a body moves in a circular path.

Angular Displacement Formula

(Eq. 1)  \(\large{ \theta = \frac{s}{r}   }\)                  

(Eq. 2)  \(\large{ \theta = \omega t  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \theta }\)  (Greek symbol theta) = angular displacement

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

\(\large{ s  }\) = linear displacement

\(\large{ r  }\) = radius of circular path

\(\large{  t }\)  = time
