A particle moves in a straight line past a point O, as shown below. At which point is the angular momentum maximum (with respect to O)? If the minimum distance between O and the line is 2 m, and the object has a mass of 2 kg and a velocity of 3 m/s, what is the maximum angular momentum of the particle with respect to O?

2. Relevant equations

angular momentum is equal to:

Iω= (mr^2)mv ??

3. The attempt at a solution

0,i think,because the momentum should be 90 degree from the radius to make the angular momentum.so in this case the particle is moving in the straight line with the point O so it will be 0
