(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two identical particles have equal but opposite momenta, p and -p, but they are not traveling along the same line show that the total angular momentum of this system does not depend on the choice of origin.

2. Relevant equations

L=r x p

Sum of torque = dL/dt

3. The attempt at a solution

Do not understand the problem at all.
