A particle of mass 1kg is moving along a straight line y=x+4. Both x and y are in metres. Velocity of the particle is 2m/s. Find the magnitude of angular momentum of the particle about the origin

Answers : (2)


Dear student,

Magnitude of angular momentum= mvr

m=1 kg

v=2 m/s

r=4 m

so L=8 kg m2/s

y = x +4

x-y+4 =0

perpendicular distance of this line from origin is given by

(x-y+4)/21/2 =4/21/2  = d

angulat momentam = mvd

                            =8/21/2 =4sqrt2 units

Are angular velocity, angular displacement and angular accleration vector?? if yes then what is its direction?? If the answer is explained then it will be approved
Except angular displacement all are vectors. As the angular displacement failed to obey the rules and laws of vector addition.
