Angular Displacement

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Angular displacement, abbreviated as \( \theta \) (Greek symbol theta), is the angle through which a body moves in a circular path.

 

Formulas that use tAngular Displacement

\(\large{ \theta = \frac{s}{r}   }\)   
\(\large{ \theta = \omega t  }\)  

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
