The concept of angular momentum can be related to linear momentum. The difference is that while linear momentum occurs with motion in a straight line, angular momentum applies to circular motion. The observations in this chapter cover the law of conservation of angular momentum. Teacher background information, assessment, safety notes, and references are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, About the Authors, An Introduction to Phenomenon-based Learning, Appendix, Credits, and Index.
