## anonymous 4 years ago a mass m moving with velocity v0 along a line y=-a and away from the origin find the magnitude of angular momentum with respect to origin

Angular momentum is calculated as $L = R \times P$ where R is the position vector and P is the momentum!.. when you want magnitude $\left| L \right| = rp \sin \theta$ where theta is angle between the position vector and the linear momentum!.. so can you calculate now?
