Homework Help: 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 http://home.earthlink.net/~urban-xrisis/clip002.jpg [Broken]

    is my work correct?
