What is the unit for angular velocity?

Is it RPM or rad/s? Or something else? Thank you.

I think I got it. It is degrees/s by default and can be converted to rad/s if radian is selected as angular unit. I assumed it to be rad/s and I almost thought it was RPM because of slow rotation.

Hello,

It really depends how you measure the velocity. If it is displayed in the user interface, then it will depend on your user settings.
But ALL API functions use the SI system (Meters, Seconds, radians, etc.).

Cheers
