## Main Question or Discussion Point

In Griffiths book, "Introduction to Electrodynamics" example 8.4 he calculates the angular momentum density for a set up that is a version of Feynman disk paradox. His answer for the angular momentum points in the z direction. But if we you assume that the r vector has component in the s direction and z direction(I am almost sure this is correct) [itex]\vec{r}[/itex] = s[itex]\hat{s}[/itex]+ z[itex]\hat{z}[/itex], then the angular momentum density has both a z component and s component. The s component is not constant. The total angular moment on the other hand has to end up with only z component or the cylinders would tip over. Where is the error in my reasoning?
