    Hello everyone!

    What are the conditions of the conservation of angular momentum ?

    And what conservation of angular momentum has to do with moon ?

    In the same way that linear momentum is conserved in a system if no resultant external force acts on it, angular momentum is conserved in a system if no resultant external torque (turning force) acts on it.

    You study angular momentum at secondary school? Lol, we haven't done that at all in A-Level Physics (only saw it on M5 in Further Maths).

    No wonder this country is going to the dogs!


    Starting to remember why I barely dropped a mark on A level physics...
