# 32.3 Worked Example - Angular Momentum About Different Points

« Previous | Next »

Two identical particles form a system. At the instant shown in the figure the particles have equal and opposite momentums: $$\displaystyle p_2=- p_1=p$$.

(Part a) Determine a vector expression for the angular momentum of the system about the point A.

(Part b) Determine a vector expression for the angular momentum of the system about the point B.

(Part c) How do your results for angular momentum about A and B compare?
