I'm stuck on the second part of a problem and can't seem to get the right answer:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculate the magnitude of the angular momentum of the earth due to its rotation around an axis through the north and south poles. Treat the earth as a uniform sphere of radius 6.38*10^6 that makes one revolution in 24.0 hours. (m=5.97*10^24)

I got the answer 1.77*10^34 but it's wrong :(
