Is angular frequency absolute?

  1. Jun 6, 2012 #1
    I want to treat this from a purely classical stance, ignoring all quantum and relativistic effects.

    If a body is undergoing centripetal acceleration, is the magnitude of the centripetal force absolute?

    If so, is its angular frequency also absolute?
