Types of Angular Velocity Measurement

Angular velocity is measured using devices called tachometers.

Tachometers are instruments that measure angular speed by registering anyone of the following

Number of rotations during the contact period (or)

  • Number of rotations per minute (rpm)
  • Tachometers are classified as follows:
