Physics 1D03 - Lecture 31 Question Two astronauts are held together by a long rope and rotate about their common center of mass. One has twice the mass of other. One astronaut gathers in 1/3 of the rope separating them. Which of the following remain constant? A) Kinetic energy B) Angular velocity C) Angular momentum D) Tension in the rope

Angular momentum of a particle: of a rotating rigid body: In general, for a moving , rotating rigid body, ω v r L CM CM m I ) ( + × = The first term is called the “orbital” angular momentum and the second term is the “spin” angular momentum. Example: angular momentum of a planet about the sun.
