2 1 Angular Momentum As no surprise: After rotational kinetic energy comes angular momentum (analogue to linear momentum) Angular momentum has units 1 kg m 2 /s L = r p sin( ? ) “Momentum at a lever arm” Notice: different from linear momentum unit: 1 kg m/s Angular momentum is a seperately conserved quantity. You can not change angular momentum from the inside. p mv 1 Conservation of Angular Momentum It is far easier to change your moment of inertia than your mass, with or without Slim-Fast ® Bringing mass toward the axis reduces I . Conserve angular momentum : reduce I =>increase ? Examp l e o f sp i nn ng c e-skater: The rotational energy is increased, when the skater reduces her I : WHY ? HOW?
