an·gu·lar ac·cel·er·a·tion

the rate of change of angular velocity; for example, when a centrifuge rotor is speeding up, or when there is a simultaneous change in velocity and direction, as in an aircraft in a tight spin.

angular acceleration

Rate of change in velocity per unit of time during circular movement.

The 3-2-1 array is generally presented as a configuration consisting of a triaxial linear acceleration unit at the origin with a pair of y-axis and z-axis oriented accelerometers on an arm along the x-axis with a single z-axis oriented accelerometer located on an arm along the y-axis; the equations for angular acceleration for this configuration consist of Eqs 4-6 [27, 30, 31, 32].
