Angular Momentum

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Angular momentum is how much an object is rotating.

FORMULA

\(L =  r  p \)

\(L =  I  v_a \)

Where:

\(L  \) = angular momentum

\(r  \) = vector length, directed from the center of rotation to the momentum point

\(p  \) = linear momentum vector

\(I  \) = moment of inertia

\(v_a  \) = angular velocity
