angular velocity

Symbol: ω. The rate at which a body or particle moves about a fixed axis, i.e. the rate of change of angular displacement. It is expressed in radians per second. Angular acceleration is the rate of change of angular velocity.

Angular Velocity

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

The core meaning of angular velocity is the angular distance, expressed in degrees and minutes of an arc, that a planet travels in the course of a day. By extension, angular velocity can also be the angular distance a heavenly body moves during any given unit of time.

For short-duration impact analyses, the numerical integration required to calculate angular velocity by arrays of linear accelerometers is generally preferred to the numerical differentiation required to calculate angular accelerations from angular velocities, as numerical integration acts as a low-pass filter to small errors in angular acceleration calculations.
