Determine expressions for the following two quantities in terms of the stars' masses, radii and T.

1- the moment of inertia of the two star system about it's center of mass

2- the angular momentum of the system about teh center of mass

for the moi, i highly doubt it but... would it just be m1r1^2 + m2r2^2 ?

and then to find the angular momentum i can just multiply the I i got before with 2pi/T... ?

thanks. :-)
