Angular momentum of a rigid body

  1. Nov 1, 2008 #1
    A 0.15 meter long, 0.15 kg thin rigid rod has a small 0.22 kg mass stuck on one of its ends and a small 0.080 kg mass stuck on the other end. The rod rotates at 1.7 rad/s through its physical center without friction. What is the magnitude of the angular momentum of the system taking the center of the rod as the origin? Treat the masses on the ends as point masses
