Angular momentum

  1. Mar 13, 2005 #1
    The hour and minute hand of a clock are 2.7m and 4.5m long and have masses of 60kg and 100kg, respectively. I need to calculate the angular momentum of both the hour hand and the minute hand. My work is here

    is my work correct?

    Nope,you need to use the correct form of the moment of inertia...
