Counterclockwise rotations about the center point where a complete rotation is equal to 1 turn.
Moment arm diagram
The torque caused by the two opposing forces Fg and −Fg causes a change in the angular momentum L in the direction of that torque. This causes the top to precess.
Torque curve of a motorcycle ("BMW K 1200 R 2005"). The horizontal axis shows the speed (in rpm) that the crankshaft is turning, and the vertical axis is the torque (in newton metres) that the engine is capable of providing at that speed.

Object rotating around an axis is the number of turns of the object divided by time, specified as revolutions per minute (rpm), cycles per second (cps), radians per second (rad/s), etc.

- Rotational speed

For example, if rotational speed (revolutions per time) is used in place of angular speed (radians per time), we multiply by a factor of 2 radians per revolution.

- Torque
Counterclockwise rotations about the center point where a complete rotation is equal to 1 turn.
