B If τ B = 0 and v B = 0 or if B is the center of mass or if v B v C then H B = constant (Conservation of Angular Momentum). You may be familiar with τ B = d H B (only valid if v B = 0 or v B P ). dt Angular momentum H B of a collection of particles about point B is given by: N H B = h B i i =1 where h B i = r i × m i v i . If ( H B ) is the sum of the angular momenta of the individual particles about point B,
