I have a 5.0 m tractrix and am trying to work out angular momentum and total angular momentum for two hitchpoint speeds 60 & 70 km/h.

My result shows a higher total angular momentum for the lower speed.

This is not what I expected.

Here are my equations

If anyone can help spot the error I would be extremely grateful
