An airplane of mass 12000kg flies level to the ground at an altitude of 10. km with a constant speed of 175 m/s relative to the earth. (a) what is the magnitude of the airplane's angular momentum relative to a ground observer directly below the airplane? (b) Does this value change as the airplane continues its motion along a straight line?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

desperate....was out with the flu now im lost

so L= r X Mv....

L=r??X (12000)(175)

r=10??

so 10X(12000)(175)

21000000. this doesnt look correct...
