We have to show that [Lx,Ly] = Lz(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[Ly,Lx] = -Lz

[Lx,Lx] = 0

and I have done this. We then need to comment on the significance of these results, which I'm not sure of. I know in QM you get similar results for commutators of these quantities, and it means that you can't simultaneously know e.g Lx and Ly, but I'm not sure what happens in CM.
