Abstract : In view of the well-established significance of the Correspondence Principle, it seems surprising that dynamical variables and parameters such as angular velocity and moment of inertia, so important in classical physics, play no role in quantum theory. It has, therefore, seemed reasonable to conduct a reinvestigation of the relation between the Dirac equation and the classical equations of motion to see at what point the correspondence was lost.
