## Question:

Determine the {eq}x, y {/eq} and {eq}z {/eq} components of the angular momentum {eq}H_O {/eq} of the particle about point {eq}O {/eq} using scalar notation. Suppose that {eq}W {/eq} = 3.2 lb

Express your answer to three significant figures separated by commas.

## Angular momentum:

The angular momentum of a particle with respect to point of origin is equal to the multiplication of the linear momentum and position vector. Angular momentum is also known as a moment of momentum and rotational momentum.

## Answer and Explanation:

Given:

- Weight of the particle is, {eq}W = 3.2\;{\rm{lb}} {/eq}

- Velocity of the particle is, {eq}{V_{AB}} = 4\;{\rm{m/s}} {/eq}

Coordinates of point...
