## 6.1: Linking Linear and Angular Momentum

In quantum mechanics , the angular momentum operator is one of several related operators analogous to classical angular momentum. The angular momentum operator plays a central role in the theory of atomic and molecular physics and other quantum problems involving rotational symmetry. Such an operator is applied to a mathematical representation of the physical state of a system and yields an angular momentum value if the state has a definite value for it. In both classical and quantum mechanical systems, angular momentum together with linear momentum and energy is one of the three fundamental properties of motion. There are several angular momentum operators: total angular momentum usually denoted J , orbital angular momentum usually denoted L , and spin angular momentum spin for short, usually denoted S.

The direction is given by the right hand rule which would give L the direction out of the diagram. For an orbit, angular momentum is conserved , and this leads to one of Kepler's laws. For a circular orbit, L becomes. The angular momentum of a rigid object is defined as the product of the moment of inertia and the angular velocity. It is analogous to linear momentum and is subject to the fundamental constraints of the conservation of angular momentum principle if there is no external torque on the object.

Why does Earth keep on spinning? What started it spinning to begin with? And how does an ice skater manage to spin faster and faster simply by pulling her arms in? Why does she not have to exert a torque to spin faster? Questions like these have answers based in angular momentum, the rotational analog to linear momentum. By now the pattern is clear—every rotational phenomenon has a direct translational analog. As we would expect, an object that has a large moment of inertia I , such as Earth, has a very large angular momentum.

So far, we have looked at the angular momentum of systems consisting of point particles and rigid bodies. We have also analyzed the torques involved, using the expression that relates the external net torque to the change in angular momentum, Equation In this case, Equation The angular momentum of a system of particles around a point in a fixed inertial reference frame is conserved if there is no net external torque around that point:. Any of the individual angular momenta can change as long as their sum remains constant.

By now we have a very good sense of how to develop the formalism for rotational motion in parallel with what we already know about linear motion. We turn now to momentum. Replacing the mass with rotational inertia and the linear velocity with angular velocity, we get:.

### Force, torque, linear momentum, and angular momentum in classical electrodynamics

While the Lorentz law requires the introduction of hidden energy and hidden momentum in situations where an electric field acts on a magnetized medium, the Einstein—Laub E—L formulation of EM force and torque does not invoke hidden entities under such circumstances. Hidden entities aside, the two formulations differ only in their predicted force and torque distributions inside matter. Such differences in distribution are occasionally measurable, and could serve as a guide in deciding which formulation, if either, corresponds to physical reality.

Angular momentum is a measure of the momentum of an object around an axis. Linear momentum p is defined as the mass m of an object multiplied by the velocity v of that object:. With a bit of a simplification, angular momentum L is defined as the distance of the object from a rotation axis multiplied by the linear momentum:.
