Angular Momentum

Express the angular momentum of a marble moving first past and around an axis.

See attached file. Definition 1: The linear momentum, vector p, of an object is its mass, m, times its velocity, vector v. Definition 2: The angular momentum, vector L, of an object about an axis, is defined as the cross product of the position, vector R, relative to the axis, and its linear momentum, vector p. Definition 3

Physics Central Force: find effective potential energy and sketch

A particle of mass 50g moves under an attractive central force of magnitude 4r^3 dynes. The angular momentum is equal to l,000 g*cm/s. a) Find the effective potential energy. b) Indicate on a sketch of the effective potential the total energy for circular motion. c) The radius of the particle's orbit varies between ro an

Mechanics problem

If a rigid homogeneous rectangular crate of mass m and height h slides on its base of w, while traveling a velocity v, it stikes a low, immovable curb. What is the angular velocity of the crate immediately after the impact, in terms of m,w,h,v; and under what condition (in m,w,h,v) will the crate fall over on its side?
