Related to angular velocity: Angular displacement, angular acceleration
angular velocity
The angle θ represents the angular displacement as body b orbits. Angular velocity is the rate of change of θ with respect to time.

## angular velocity

n.
The rate of change of angular displacement with respect to time.

## angular velocity

n
(General Physics) the velocity of a body rotating about a specified axis measured as the rate of change of the angle subtended at that axis by the path of the body. Symbol: ω

## an′gular veloc′ity

n.
the rate at which a body rotates about an axis, usu. expressed in radians per second.

## angular velocity

The rate at which an object moving in a circular path changes its position, measured in revolutions per minute.
