The following article is from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979). It might be outdated or ideologically biased.
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 = 2πf = 2π/T.
