Similarly, you may ask, what is angular motion measured in?

Because it involves changes in **angle**, **angular motion** is **measured** in terms of degrees per second (or hour) … or radians per minute, or arcseconds per year, or … i.e. an **angle** per a unit of time.

Likewise, what is an example of angular momentum? An **example** of conservation of **angular momentum** is seen in an ice skater executing a spin, as shown in. Her **angular momentum** is conserved because the net torque on her is negligibly small. In the next image, her rate of spin increases greatly when she pulls in her arms, decreasing her moment of inertia.

Similarly, you may ask, what is angular motion in biomechanics?

**Angular motion**. the **motion** of a body about a fixed point or fixed axis, as of a planet or pendulum. It is equal to the angle passed over at the point or axis by a line drawn to the body.

What is linear and angular motion?

**Rotational Motion**. • **Linear motion** involves an object moving from one point to another in a straight line. • **Rotational motion** involves an object rotating about an axis.
