  1. Jan 24, 2007 #1
    Not homework, just wondering.

    Does angular momentum has a perceptible physical meaning?

    What do you mean by perceptible?

    You can make a simple experiment of Newton's 2nd law for rotational motion if you sit on a chair which can rotate, let someone spin you, and do this a) with your hands on your knees; b) with your hands spread.
