Angular Momentum Units: kg m²/s = N m s = J s Just as linear momentum quantifies the amount of motion, angular momentum quantifies the amount of rotation. Note that as with torque, the value depends on the center used. We want an equivalent of and of p dt p d F = net ) ( v r m p r L × = × = Angular momentum:
