# What is angular speed and angular velocity?

That is analogous to linear speed and velocity, but for rotation. Whereas a linear speed (or velocity) is expressed in meters per second (or some other units of distance / tim…e), the angular speed or velocity is expressed in radians / second (or some other units of angle / time). Of course, when something rotates, there is also a linear speed, but different parts of an object rotate at different linear speeds, whereas the angular speed is the same for all parts of a rotating object - at least, in the case of a solid object. For example: the Earth rotates at an angular speed of 1 full rotation / day. The linear speed at the equator is approximately 1667 km/hour; close to the poles, the linear speed is much less.

# What is angular velocity and radial velocity?

Angular velocity is the rate of change of angle of a body, i.e. omega = v / r = (2*pi*r)/ r*t = (2*pi)/ T where T is the time period of whatever is rotating and r is the ra…dius of the circle.So if a circular disc is spinning at 1 m/s then the angular velocity of it is 2*pi radians/ second Radial velocity is the velocity in m/s at the radius of the circle i.e. radial velocity v = omega*r = (2*pi*r)/ T (equivalent to speed = distance/ time where in this case distance is the circumference of the circle and time is the time period of one rotation)----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Angular velocity Ď‰, is the rate of change of angular displacement dĎ†/dt. Itspecifies the angular speed (rotational speed) of an object and the axis about which the object is rotating. Ď‰ = 2Ď€f =2Ď€/T [=] rad/s where f is the rotation frequency (rev/s) and T the time it takes to make a revolution (s/rev). Tangential velocity v. When an object rotates around in a circle with radius r, itslinear velocity tangent to the circle is the tangent velocity v. v = Ď‰r [=] m/s Radial velocity vr, is the component of the velocity of an object away or towardthe origin or point of observation.

# How do you define angular velocity and angular speed?

Angular velocity is given as radians per second; angular speed is also the same thing. Velocity is a vector with magnitude and direction and speed a scalar with magnitude only…. The magnitude is identical; velocity will define the direction of rotation ( clockwise or counterclockwise).

# What is the dimension formula of angular velocity?

angular velocity (omega) = theta/time taken theta is dimensionless i.e. it has no dimensions therefore, the diemnsion of angular velocity is 1/T=T^-1

# Explain the term angular velocity?

Angular velocity is a measure of how fast something is spinning. It can be measured as either degrees per second or radians per second. 1 turn per second would be 2 PI radians… per second or 6.283185... rad/sec or 360o /sec

# When angular velocity decreases the direction of angular acceleration is opposite to angular velocity .why?

Take the velocity to be in positive direction. Positive acceleration increases velocity and they are in the same direction. Negative acceleration reduce velocity and they …are in opposite direction. It does not matter if the motion in linear or anfular.

# What the relationship between angular velocity and period of rotation?

The time, T , it takes for an object to go thru one comblete rotation of 360 degrees or 2pi radians is its "period." The rate at which it completes the rotation is its "an…gular velocity." The rate is the angle (in radians) divided by the time. So , Angular Velocity = 2 pi / T.

# What is the angular velocity of the earths rotation?

It takes the Earth approximately 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.09 seconds to make one complete revolution (360 degrees). This length of time is known as a sidereal day. The Earth… rotates at a moderate angular velocity of 7.2921159 Ă— 10-5 radians/second

# What direction does the angular velocity vector of the Earth's rotation point toward?

The Earth's angular velocity vector due to its axial rotation points towards the north pole.

# How to convert Angular velocity to velocity?

V=wr Where : V: Linear velocity w: Angular velocity r: Radius v = 600 m/m r=0.75m

# How do you increase the angular velocity of a rotating object?

Angular velocity just means how fast it's rotating. If youaa want more angular velocity, just rotate it faster or decrease the radius (move it closer to the center of …rotation). Just like force = rate of change of momentum, you have torque= rate of change of angular moment Or We can increase the angular velocity of a rotating particle by applying a tangential force(i.e. accelaration) on the particle. Since the velocity of the particle is tangential with the circle along which it is moving, the tangential accelaration will not change the diriction of the velocity(as angle is 0),but will cause a change in magnitude. Thus angular velocity will increase.

# What direction is the earth's angular velocity for its daily rotation on its axis?

The earth rotates counter clockwise when looking down on the North pole; everything proceeds to the east. In terms of vectors, this means the angular v…elocity vector for the earth points straight up along the earth's center axis, following the "right hand rule" where your fingers curl around in the direction of rotation and your thumb points in the vector's direction.

# How is the radius of rotation related to the centripetal force and angular velocity?

Assuming that angles are measured in radians, and angular velocity in radians per second (this simplifies formulae): Radius of rotation is unrelated to angular vel…ocity. Linear velocity = angular velocity x radius Centripetal acceleration = velocity squared / radius Centripetal acceleration = (angular velocity) squared x radius Centripetal force = mass x acceleration = mass x (angular velocity) squared x radius

# What is angular velocity?

Angular velocity is a measurement of how fast something is turning. Everyone has heard of "RPM", which stands for "Revolutions Per Minute" ... how many complete …turns an object makes in one minute. That's a perfectly good measurement of angular velocity, although in Physics, angular velocity is normally given in different units. The standard unit for angular velocity is "radians per second". Each complete turn covers (2 pi) radians (same as 360 degrees). And there are 60 seconds in one minute. So if you know the RPM, you can multiply RPM by (2 pi / 60) = 0.10472 to get angular velocity in standard units. An old LP phonograph record (remember those ?) playing at 33-1/3 RPM has an angular velocity of about 3.5 radians per second. A car engine idling at 1,000 RPM is turning at about 104.7 radians per second.

# The angular velocity vector of earths rotation points from?

Without looking it up, I'll go out on a limb here and state my guess. (Then somebody else can come along and show that my guess was all wet.) I think angular velocity and ac…celeration are both right-hand-rule guys, with vectors formed by (R) cross (rotation direction). If true, and rotation is from west to east (counterclock viewed from above the north pole), then the angular velocity vector points into the south pole and out of the north pole. Correction: You have stated the true method for the answer above, but got the opposite answer. Since the earth rotates in a counter-clockwise direction viewed from the north pole, the angular velocity vector would point from the center of the earth to the north pole. It's magnitude would be the angular velocity of the earth's spin. -J I think that's exactly what I said ... " ... out of the north pole". Ah I see, my apologies. I think where I was confused was where you stated "into the south pole..." Instead you can state that it would originate from the center and point towards the north pole. You can rewrite it and delete our discussion :)

# What is constantant angular velocity?

Assuming you mean "Constant angular velocity", let's break it down. Constant, meaning "something that does not or cannot change or vary". Velocity is distance over t…ime, or "speed". Angular velocity is the angular distance (such as "one rotation") An example of velocity would be 60 Miles per Hour (MPH). That would be that in one hour, an object would travel 60 miles. An example of angular velocity would be 45 Degrees per Hour. For a real world example, Earth turns 1 full revolution every day. "1 revolution per day" is an angular velocity. Lets convert this to a different unit. There are 360 degrees in 1 revolution. Therefor, we can say that Earth has an angular velocity of 360 degrees per day." We can convert this unit again. There are 24 hours in one day. 360 divided by 24 = 15 degrees per hour, which is another example of angular velocity. Simply put, angular velocity is the speed at which something is rotating. In computers, angular velocity is commonly used to describe a mechanical hard disk drive. Hard drive speeds are measured in Rotations per Minute (RPM) and are commonly 4200, 5200 or 7200 RPM. The faster the speed of the hard drive, the faster it can read and write data.
