After a few classmates asked for my guidance on the subject, I chose to write about "What is 'angular speed'". So if you're uncertain, stick with me…

A quick answer is…

Change of direction per unit time, as of a target on a radar screen, without regard to the direction of the rotation axis. In other words, the magnitude of the angular velocity vector.

Angular Speed (ω) is the scalar measure of rotation rate.

In one complete rotation, angular distance traveled is 2π and time is time period (T).

I have selected a few questions and answers to help you understand it:

## Angular speed

### What is meant by angular speed...

Angular speed is the rate at which an object changes its angle (measured) in radians, in a given time period. Angular speed has a magnitude (a value) only. Angular speed = (final angle) – (initial angle) / time = change in position/timeThis article ends here. But if you have any questions, please drop them at the comments below.

Note to self: Post outline OK.
