*The Great Soviet Encyclopedia*(1979). It might be outdated or ideologically biased.## Angular Frequency

the number of complete oscillations made in 2π units of time during a periodic oscillatory process. The relation between the angular frequency ω and the oscillation period Tor the oscillation frequency/is given by the equation ω = 2π*f* = 2π/*T*.
