    A car of mass 1000kg moves with a speed of 50 m/s on a circular track of radius 100m. What is the magnitude of its angular momentum (in kg.m^2/s) relative to the center of the racetrack?
    ==============================================
    Answers:
    a) 5 x 10^2
    b) 5 x 10^6
    c) 2.5 x 10^6
    d) 2.5 x 10^4

    A 50 kg ice skater is moving at 5 m/s when she grabs the loose end of a rope, then opposite end of which is tied to a pole. She then moves in a circle of radius 1m around the pole. Determine the force exerted by the rope on her arms.
    ==============================================
    a) 1250 N
    b) 250 N
    c) 50 N
    d) 1100 N

    Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass.

    Angular momentum is defined as
    J=P*r*sin(w)

    Where P is the linear momentum vector's magnitude of the object and r is the distance vector's magnitude from the object to the ref. point. w is the angle between the two vectors.

    in our case ...
