Unformatted text preview: use software on a computer to track the position of the puck. From the position motion along a series of points, we can calculate the area of small triangles that are present during the pucks motion. Keplers law states that if the area of the triangle changed, it means that the angular momentum has changed. My theory is that the puck will not experience constant angular momentum because there is still some friction present on the table. It is obvious that the friction is there because the puck after about 20s has completely stopped....
