Angular Velocity



Angular velocity of a rotating body B in a global frame G is the instantaneous rotation of the body with respect to G. Angular velocity is a vectorial quantity. Using the analytic description of angular velocity, we introduce the velocity and time derivative of homogenous transformation matrices.
