Angular momentum (L) is given by:

[itex]\displaystyle L=Iω[/itex]

ω is angular velocity

and the moment of inertia (I) of a rigid body is given by:

[itex]\displaystyle I = \int^{m}_{0}r^{2}\delta m[/itex]

m is the mass of the rigid body, and r is the radius from the axis of rotation

So the angular momentum of a rigid body is:

[itex]\displaystyle L = ω \int^{m}_{0}r^{2}\delta m[/itex]
