# define angular momentum and linear momentum

### Asked by Sonia | 4th Jul, 2016, 11:49: PM

Expert Answer:

### The linear momentum of a body is defined as the product of its mass and linear velocity. If m is the mass of the body and v is the velocity, then
Linear momentu, p = mv

The angular momentum is the rotational analogy to linear momentum.
Angular momentum is equal to the product of the moment of inertia and angular velocity Iω

The angular momentum is the rotational analogy to linear momentum.
