Problem: What is the magnitude of the angular momentum of the 2.60kg , 5.90-cm-diameter rotating disk in the Figure (figure is a circle with 600 rpm)?What is its direction?What is its direction?  x direction -x direction  y direction -y direction  z direction -z direction

FREE Expert Solution

The angular momentum of the rotating disk is expressed as:

L=12mrv

But v = rω

Therefore, L = (1/2)mr2ω
