Somewhat confused about this problem and need some clarification:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Problem: A particle of mass 0.01kg rotates with angular speed of 2 rad/s in a circle of radius 0.8m. What is its angular momentum?

I think the answer should be:

I = 0.01kg X (0.8m^2) = 0.0064 kg/m^2.

w = 2 rad/s.

Therefore, angular momentum = 0.0064 kg/m^2 X 2 rad/s = 0.128 kg*rad/m^2*s.

Am I on the correct path?
