Angular velocity of a rolling sphere, abbreviated as \(\omega\) (Greek symbol omega), without slipping is the velocity of a point on the circumference (relative to the center of the sphere), divided by the radius of the sphere.

 

Formulas that use Angular Velocity of a Rolling Sphere

\(\large{ \omega = \frac{ v }{ r }   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ \omega }\)   (Greek symbol omega) = angular velocity

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity

\(\large{ r }\) = sphere radius
