Can someone explain to me why and when some words use the "ω" and others "ο"? Is there a rule for that?

The Greek language alphabet letters, όμικρον O o and ωμέγα Ω ω, sharing the same English language alphabet letter O o, do not share the phonetic pronunciation.

Xylophone ξυλόφωνο is an example word to demonstrate the greek small and large "O" sound / pronunciation difference.

όμικρον · ó-mi-cron · | · μικρο · mikró · small micro · | όμικρον = small ό | ξυλόφωνο · xylófono

ωμέγα · oméga · | · μέγ még max · | · μέγα · méga · | · ω-μέ-γα · o-mé-ga = large ω · | ξυλόφωνο · xylófono

The "O" sound in ξυλό xyló [ small O ]

The "O" sound in φων fon [ large O ]

ξυλόφωνο xylófono | xylophone ˈzīləˌfōn | pronunciation enPR: zīʹlə-fōn', IPA(key): /ˈzaɪ.lə.ˌfəʊn/ · https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/xylophone · https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ξυλόφωνο

We took this word (and many other Greek words) and adapted it into our own English language, hence the word, "chrome".

And a lot of words which have something to do with colour start with the chroma- prefix, e.g. chromatography
