I have a book that gives a formulae Angular Speed as same as the Angular Velocity.....is that true?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

From what i understand, speed is a scalar quantity.....so it only have the magnitude value while velocity is a vector quantity which also shows the direction.

Also, will the average angular speed = average angular velocity? The same book states its the same....but I have doubt on that statement .....could anyone help me in this? Thanks in advance
