Angular momentum is a pseudovector that represents the product of a body's rotational inertia and rotational velocity about a particular axis. Angular momentum depends on where the origin is chosen since the particle's position is measured from it. The total sum of the angular momentum of any composite system is the pseudovector sum of the angular momenta of its constituent parts. Try this quiz to test your knowledge on this topic.
