Question The net torque acting on an object is zero. What can you say about the angular momentum (about the same axis) of the object?

Answer: The angular momentum (about the same axis) of the object is constant Explanation: Torque is the time time derivative of angular momentum. τ = dL / dt where; dL is the change in angular momentum τ is torque acting on the object dt is change in time when net torque acting on an object is zero, then dL / dt = 0 Change in angular momentum (ΔL) is zero, therefore we can say that the angular momentum (L) is constant. Thus, the angular momentum (about the same axis) of the object is constant. Log in to Reply

Answer:The angular momentum (about the same axis) of the object is

constantExplanation:Torque is the time time derivative of angular momentum.

τ = dL / dt

where;

dL is the change in angular momentum

τ is torque acting on the object

dt is change in time

when net torque acting on an object is zero, then

dL / dt = 0

Change in angular momentum (ΔL) is zero, therefore we can say that the angular momentum (L) is constant.

Thus, the angular momentum (about the same axis) of the object is

constant.
