what is momentum , linear momentum and angular momentum ?

what is the difference between linear and angular momentum?

From the following definitions you can find the differences between angular and linear momentum.

** Angular momentum **is defined as the product of moment of inertia and angular velocity of a body.

A body of mass ‘m’ revolving in a circular path of radius ‘**r**’ with angular velocity ‘**ω**’ will have an angular momentum as,

**L **=( **r** × **p**) [bold letters indicate vector quantities]

**L=Iω**

The SI unit of angular momentum is kg m^{2}/s

** Linear momentum **is defined as the product of mass and linear velocity of a body.

A body of mass ‘m’ moving with velocity ‘v’ has a linear momentum of,

**P **= m**v** [bold letters indicate vector quantities]

The SI unit of linear momentum is kg m/s.
