Money doesn't make the world go round - it's actually due to the conservation of angular momentum. Your lucky liquid is soup.
(Historically, the spot's color seems to intensify when its westward drift accelerates.) The cause of the darkening isn't clear, but Simon suspects it has to do with conservation of angular momentum. As the spot shrinks, its internal circulation should speed up--but it hasn't.
This explains both the high conservation of angular momentum and the isotope mixing, though this is a still a theoretical model and not one we've observed in the real-world to date.
During the evolution, the rigorous conservation of angular momentum is imposed by adjusting the orbital angular velocityin (20) such that (17) remains constant.
Integrating the obtained equation and using the principle of conservation of angular momentum, we can find the main external forces momentum that impede the movement of the motor vehicle
In reference [6] we also discuss the examples that law of conservation of momentum and law of conservation of angular momentum are not correct (their results are contradicted with law of conservation of energy).
With a tendency to say things like, "I love talking about the conservation of angular momentum" and "diffraction is interesting for lots of technical reasons", he sends me into orbit, in a good way.
The law of conservation of angular momentum dictates that the angular momentum lost by the star would be transferred to the charged particles in the disk, presumably raising their orbits around the star.
This disparity across a small depth of air creates strong winds in the upper atmosphere; sub-tropical jet streams, however, depend on a process known as conservation of angular momentum. The UK experiences the Polar Front Jet, which marks the boundary between cold polar air moving south and warm tropical air moving north.
The physics of the collision is described by applying the law of conservation of angular momentum to the ball-bat interaction.
However, the angular momentum could not disappear into nothingness, for there was a law of conservation of angular momentum. If the Earth lost some, then it seemed most likely that the Moon would have to gain just the amount Earth lost.
