# Angular Momentum of an Object with Linear Momentum

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Angular momentum of an object, abbreviated as $$\Delta L$$, is the porportion of the average net torque and the time interval the torque is applied to.

### Angular Momentum of an object with linear momentum FORMULA

$$\large{ L = m \; v \; r_{\perp} }$$

Where:

$$\large{ L }$$ = angular momentum

$$\large{ m }$$  (Greek symbol tau) = mass

$$\large{ r_{\perp} }$$ = perpendicular radius is from a chosen axis to the mass's line of motion

$$\large{ v }$$ = velocity
