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.

where [omega] and [OMEGA] are angular velocities of two different rotations: [omega] is the angular velocity of rotation of a space body around a centre of attraction; [OMEGA] is the angular velocity of rotation of the concomitant rotation of a space body and its centre of attraction around a greater space body.
