- But its angular velocity - the rate at which it was traveling around the earth, measured in revolutions per hour - was lower.
- The screw heads will not move at all with respect to each other, assuming that both screws are being rotated at the same angular velocity.
- Just before free falling, the pendulum is at its widest angle (highest point), where the angular velocity is zero.
