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

I have a relatively straight forward question. If we have a Lagrangian that only depends on time and the position coordinate (and its derivative), how can I decide whether angular momentum is conserved?

That is, if the Lagrangian specifically does not have theta or phi dependence, does that mean that angular momentum is always conserved?
