Can anyone tell me the difference between "rotational velocity" and "angular velocity"?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I got that angular velocity is the dimension of angle/time, but rotational velocity is the dimension of rotations/time.

Will appreciate it if you can also provide me with some references defining the difference.

Thank you in advance for your help.
