# Angular Momentum

Angular momentum, abbreviated as L, also called rotational momentum or moment of momentum, is how much an object is rotating around a fixed point.

## Angular Momentum formulas

\(\large{ L = I \; \omega }\) | |

\(\large{ L = r \; p }\) |

### Where:

\(\large{ L }\) = angular momentum (rotational momentum)

\(\large{ \omega }\) (Greek symbol omega) = angular velocity

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

\(\large{ p }\) = linear momentum

\(\large{ I }\) = moment of inertia

\(\large{ m }\) = object mass

\(\large{ v }\) = object velocity

### Solve for:

\(\large{ p = m \; v }\) |
