## Angular Momentum Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the angular momentum of an object.

L = I * w

- Where L is the angular momentum (kgm^2/s)
- I is the moment of inertia (kg*m^2)
- w is the angular frequency (rad/s)

You can calculate the angular frequency using the angular speed calculator linked above.

## Angular Momentum Definition

Angular momentum is defined as the product of angular velocity and mass of a rotating system or object.

## Angular Momentum Example

How to calculate angular momentum

**First, determine the moment of inertia**This can be calculated using the mass moment of the inertia calculator linked above.

**Next, determine the angular frequency**Determine the angular speed at which the object is moving.

**Finally, calculate the angular moment**Using the information from steps 1 and 2 and the formula above, calculate the angular moment.
