Angular momentum:

$\overline{)\stackrel{\mathbf{\rightharpoonup}}{\mathbf{L}}{\mathbf{=}}\stackrel{\mathbf{\rightharpoonup}}{\mathbf{r}}{\mathbf{\times}}\stackrel{\mathbf{\rightharpoonup}}{\mathbf{p}}}$

$\overline{)\begin{array}{rcl}\stackrel{\mathbf{\rightharpoonup}}{\mathbf{L}}& {\mathbf{=}}& \stackrel{\mathbf{\rightharpoonup}}{\mathbf{I}}\mathbf{\times}\stackrel{\mathbf{\rightharpoonup}}{\mathbf{\omega}}\end{array}}$

Moment of inertia:

$\overline{){\mathbf{I}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{\int}}}_{{\mathbf{0}}}^{{\mathbf{m}}}{{\mathbf{r}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{d}}{\mathbf{m}}}$

**Part A**
