Answer:the direction of angular momentum =

EASTExplanation:given

Direction of position = r = north

Direction of velocity = v = up

angular momentum = L = m(r x v)

where m is the mass, r is the radius, v is the velocity

utilizing the right hand rule, the right finger heading towards the course of position vector and curl them toward direction of velocity, at that point stretch thumb will show the bearing of the angular momentum.then L = north

xup = East
