Related to angular velocity: Angular displacement, angular acceleration

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.

The analysis of variance (ANOVA) test was used to compare normally distributed continuous variables (height, weight, FT3, FT4, the knee extensor peak torque at the angular velocities of 60[degrees]/s and 180[degrees]/s, the knee flexor peak torque at the angular velocities of 60[degrees]/s and 180[degrees]/s, the total work during knee flexion and extension at angular velocity of 180[degrees]/s) between the three groups.
If the torque on the drive axle and its angular velocity are known, then it is easy to determine the mechanical power transferred from the motor to the drive axle:
But the sensor can also determine the exact time of release, because at that instant the angular velocity stops increasing.
We have introduced the MHD flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid confined with non-coaxially porous disk and a fluid at infinity are rotating with different angular velocity in such a way that the Cartesian co-ordinate system of a three- dimensional geometry, is taken at the plane of the disk z = 0 and the z-axis is normal to the porous disk.
From the simplest theory of the yarn unwinding which doesn't take into account the air drag nor the Coriolis force, we know that the tension is proportional to the angular velocity squared:
Coaxial wheels have the same angular velocity (see wheels 2 and 3).
The DV-516E supports both standard 12cm and mini 8cm discs and the unit's Constant Angular Velocity (CAV) capabilities optimize the drive's throughput and reliability by rotating the disc at a consistent speed.
The software includes measurement tools that determine size, distance, speed, velocity, displacement, populations, angle, angular rotation, and angular velocity in US or metric units.
A cubic function that is continuous, and has a continuous first and second derivative is employed to represent the angular position of the motor the derivative of which gives the angular velocity.
An analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed with the angular velocity of the bat and wrists as main effects.
