Lesson: Angular Momentum in Terms of Linear Momentum Physics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the angular momentum of an object that is moving along a circular path from its instantaneous linear momentum.
Which of the following is the correct unit of angular momentum?
The figure shows an object with a mass and an instantaneous linear velocity . At which of the labeled points would the angular momentum of the object be greatest?
An object moves along a circular path. The object has a linear momentum of 12 kg⋅m/s and an angular momentum of 57.6 kg⋅m2/s. What is the radius of the object’s circular path?
