Two astronauts, each having a mass of

61.9 kg, are connected by a 14.7 m rope of negligible mass. They are isolated in space, orbiting their center of mass at speeds of 5.57 m/s.

Calculate the magnitude of the initial angular momentum of the system by treating the

astronauts as particles.

Answer in units of kg m2
