WebJul 20, 2022 · If the velocity of the object is in the + ˆθ -direction, (rotating in the counterclockwise direction in Figure 6.7 (a)), then the z -component of the angular velocity is positive, ωz = dθ / dt > 0 The angular velocity vector then points in the + ˆk -direction as shown in Figure 6.7 (a).
