The rate of change of an angle associated with an object with respect to some reference point. For example, the average angular velocity of an object moving around a central reference point once every second is 2π radians per second; the Earth spins around its axis with an angular velocity of 2π radians per day. Also called *angular frequency*

Noun

(*plural* angular velocities)

- (mathematics, physics) The angle turned, in a given time, by a body rotating about an axis; the rate of rotation through an angle.
- A differential is a device, usually, but not necessarily, employing gears, which is connected to the outside world by three shafts, through which it transmits torque and rotation. The gears or other components make the three shafts rotate in such a way that , where
*a*,*b*, and*c*are the angular velocities of the three shafts, and*p*and*q*are constants. [...] In automobiles and other wheeled vehicles, a differential allows the driving roadwheels to rotate at different speeds. This is necessary when the vehicle turns, making the wheel that is travelling around the outside of the turning curve roll farther and faster than the other. The engine is connected to the shaft rotating at angular velocity*a*. The driving wheels are connected to the other two shafts, and*p*and*q*are equal.^{WP}
