## 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.

Values of Vmin--arithmetic means and standard deviations of the highest angular velocities in joints turned in opposite directions to Vmax in individual tests are presented in Table 3.
The peak torque values of the knee flexion and extension measured at 60[degrees] and 180[degrees]/sec angular velocities of the right knees in all groups are shown in Figure 1a, b.
Figure 7a shows the robot trajectory and the given path, figure 7b shows the linear and angular velocities of the robot during the motion.
Those objects are very common in machines and easy to be analyzed to extract angular velocities. The previous researches did not attempt to measure the high-speed rotation by an ERS camera [4-7].
Post hoc analysis indicated higher pre fatigue angular velocities during the entire support phase for both legs and higher angular velocities at the final (60% to100%) part of the pre-support phase (P< 0.05) for the non-preferred leg.
Again, all simulation's conditions are kept the same while the projectile is given different CW and CCW angular velocities; namely, [??] = 0,500, -500, 1000, and -1000 rad/sec.
From Figures 4 and 5, one can see that NDO-USOF provides much better responses of quaternion parameters and angular velocities. Specifically, Figure 4 shows that, for SOF, responses of quaternion parameters cannot be stabilized to zero.
In addition, three maximal knee extensor concentric and eccentric torques were obtained at four different angular velocities: 60[degrees] x [s.sup.-1], 120[degrees] x [s.sup.-1],, 180[degrees] x [s.sup.-1],, and 240[degrees] x [s.sup.-1], (11).
Presence of a single rigid plate of certain segments that move with different angular velocities relative to each other is obtained, also confirmed by the results of tectonic and paleotectonic observations.
