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 -

    r = 6 meters
    I = m r^23 = 124(36)
    v = w r so w (6)=5 and w = 5/6

    L = I w = 124(36)(5/6) = 124*30 = 3720
    kg m^2/s
