How do i find the angular momentum of the system relative to the centre of the mass? I have found the centre of mass already. It's 10.7cm from the perimeter of the small puck.

Firstly

Consider the distance of the centre of gravity from the centre of the first (moving puck) that might help

Realize that the COM of the system istubworld said:How do i find the angular momentum of the system relative to the centre of the mass? I have found the centre of mass already. It's 10.7cm from the perimeter of the small puck.

Start by finding the speed of the center of mass.

Big hint:

Horizontal position of center of mass:

[tex]M_{total} x_{cm} = m_1 x_1 + m_2 x_2[/tex]

Horizontal speed of center of mass:

[tex]M_{total} v_{cm} = m_1 v_1 + m_2 v_2[/tex]
