Hi All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

According to some text book, angular momentum can be represented as follows;

L = rxP + I*W

r is position from the origin, P is translational momentum, I is inertia tensor and W is angular velocity. Is it possible to call I*W part as intrinsic angular momentum?

Thanks
