Angular Velocity

velocity angularAngular velocity, abbreviated as \(\omega\) (Greek symbol omega) or \(v_a\), also called angular speed, is the speed that an object moves through an angle, θ.  The calculation below calculates ω but does not calculate the relative velocity of a point as it moves throughout the curve.

Angular velocity formulas

\(\large{ \omega = \frac { \theta } { t  }   }\)   
\(\large{ \omega = \frac { \Delta A } { t  }   }\)   


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

\(\large{ \Delta A  }\) = change in angle displacement

\(\large{ t  }\) = time

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