What is Angular displacement: Definition and 68 Discussions
Angular displacement of a body is the angle in radians (degrees, revolutions) through which a point revolves around a centre or line has been rotated in a specified sense about a specified axis. When a body rotates about its axis, the motion cannot simply be analyzed as a particle, as in circular motion it undergoes a changing velocity and acceleration at any time (t). When dealing with the rotation of a body, it becomes simpler to consider the body itself rigid. A body is generally considered rigid when the separations between all the particles remains constant throughout the body's motion, so for example parts of its mass are not flying off. In a realistic sense, all things can be deformable, however this impact is minimal and negligible. Thus the rotation of a rigid body over a fixed axis is referred to as rotational motion.

I walk around a circular track. My displacement is 0 because I'm back at my starting point.
How about my angular displacement? Is it 2 pi radians, or is it also 0? The definitions I've been reading online seem to indicate that 2 pi radians is the answer.
One of my friend has answered this question in this way.
Angular displacement can't be a vector because addition is not commutative. Say we are looking at the Earth with North America facing us and the North Pole facing up:if we rotate the Earth so that we move 90 degrees north, now the NP is...
