Angular Momentum
ANGULAR MOMENTUM
.
The measure of the quantity of motion possessed by a body in rotational motion is called ANGULAR MOMENTUM.
Definition
Angular momentum of a body is defined as :
“The angular momentum of a body about an axis is the product of its linear
momentum and the perpendicular distance of the body from the axis.”
In other words
“The angular momentum of a body is equal to cross product of its
linear momentum and the vector distance from the axis of rot
ation.”
Mathematical representation
If a body of mass “
m
” is moving in a circle or radius
with velocity
, the linear momentum of body is
The angular momentum of the body is given by:
=
X
Putting the value of
=
X m
Magnitude of Angular momentum
Since
Angle between
and
is equal to 90
^{o}
L = m rv sinq
L = m rv sin90
L = m rv (1)
L = m r v
But
v = rw
L = m r(rw)
L = m r
^{2}
w
We know that
m r
^{2}
is equal to moment of inertia i.e.
I = m r
^{2}
Thus
Unit of Angular momentum
In S.I. System unit of angular momentum is “
joule.second
“.
