Definition of Angular Momentum PHYS276, S09 Chapter 6 2 D3-01: start spinning and watch it spin Newton’s second law: something moving at a constant velocity will continue with that velocity (both magnitude AND direction) unless acted upon by an external force. F = d p dt p=m v No external forces -> momentum is conserved Rotational analogy: angular momentum
Angular Momentum PHYS276, S09 Chapter 6 3 We know: τ = rx F = rx d p dt Define: L rx p (r is from axis of rotation) d L dt = rx d p dt + d r dt x p = rx d p dt + vx p = rx d p dt = d L dt =
