Problem 10.14: Calculate the angular momentum of several rotating objects

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Each animation shows an object rotated about a fixed axis through the center (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). Every object has the same mass, m = 2 kg. Every animation has a black dot in the center indicating the origin of the coordinate system. You are to calculate the angular momentum about this point for each animation. Calculate and rank (from greatest to least) the angular momentum (about the origin) of the objects in each animation. Restart.
