Angular Momentum Calculator
The Angular Momentum Calculator is a tool used to calculate the angular momentum of an object or system. Angular momentum is a property of rotating objects and is determined by the mass, velocity, and distance from the axis of rotation.
The formula to calculate angular momentum is:
Angular Momentum (L) = Moment of Inertia (I) * Angular Velocity (ω)
- Moment of Inertia (I) is a measure of an object’s resistance to rotational motion and depends on the object’s mass distribution and axis of rotation.
- Angular Velocity (ω) is the rate of change of angular displacement over time.
If an object has a moment of inertia of 2 kg·m² and an angular velocity of 5 rad/s, the calculation would be: Angular Momentum = 2 kg·m² * 5 rad/s = 10 kg·m²/s
Therefore, the angular momentum would be 10 kg·m²/s.
