Unformatted text preview: some ±xed point about which L has been calculated. ²or example, for a particle of mass m in uniform circular motion with radius R and with linear speed v , we can write L = Iω = ( mR 2 ) p v R P = mRv Total Points for Problem: 1 Points Solution to Homework Problem 20.3() Problem: What does angular momentum measure? Solution Angular momentum is a measure of an object’s capacity to change the rotational motion of another object (just as linear momentum is a measure of an object’s capacity to change the linear motion of another object).
