For the particle, the perpendicular distance between the velocity vector and the origin is **a**.

A particle of mass m moves with a constant speed v along the dashed line y = a. When the x-coordinate of the particle is x_{0}, the magnitude of the angular momentum of the particle with respect to the origin of the system is
