Relationship between angular frequency and angular velocity

The angular frequency is similar to the angular velocity in circular motion.

Continuous circular motion can be thought of as a type of oscillation because the object always returns to the starting point after each complete circle.

The magnitude of angular velocity and angular frequency are numerically equivalent in the case of circular motion (they even have the same symbol $$\omega$$).
