1/2π of a revolution
The change in the angle as an object rotates.
The angular displacement of an object divided by the time needed to make the displacement.
The change in angular velocity divided by the time needed to make the change; is measured in radians per second squared.
The perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation to the point where force is exerted.
A measure of how effectively a force causes rotation; is equal to the force times the lever arm.
Moment of Inertia
