Angular momentum

The angular momentum is the extent to which an object will continue to rotate around a given axis, without an external force moment or torque being applied to it.

 


Explanation

When a point mass rotates around a given axis of rotation, the angular momentum is the product of the mass of the object, the velocity and the distance - perpendicular to the velocity - to the axis.
