Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum

on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

angular momentumLaw of conservation of angular momentum states the angular moment of a system of particles around a fixed point is conserved if there is no net external torque around that point.


law of conservation of angular momentum formula

\(\large{ L =  I \; \omega }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ L  }\) = angular momentum (rotational momentum) \(\large{\frac{lbm-ft^2}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{kg-m^2}{s}}\)
\(\large{ \omega }\)  (Greek symbol omega) = angular velocity \(\large{\frac{deg}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{rad}{s}}\)
\(\large{ I  }\) = moment of inertia \(\large{ lbm-ft^2 }\)  \(\large{ kg-m^2 }\)
