Two astronaut, as shown in the figure, each having a mass of 62.0 kg, are connected by a 12.00 m rope of negligible mass. They are isolated in space, moving in circles around the point halfway between them at a speed of 5.00 m/s. Treating the astronauts as particles, calculate (a) the magnitude of the angular momentum

  • physics - ,

    Their angular velocity about the center of rotation is
    w = V/R = 5.0/6 = 0.833 rad/s

    The angular momentum is

    2*M*w*R^2

    where M is the mass of a single astronaut
