    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Problem is attached.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I just can't remember how to translate linear momentum to angular momentum. I'm not sure how to apply conservation of momentum.

    i've not yet seen the attached file, it's not yet approved.

    linear momentum = mv
    now v = rw
    w is angular velocity.

    angular momentum = mrw

    was that what you were asking?
