## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 05/31/2009

2000 pounds = 907.2 kg 30 mph = 13.41 m/s momentum = velocity * mass momentum = 13.41 m/s * 907.2 kg momentum = 12166 kg*m/s

### What is unit of angular momentum?

Angular momentum is defined as the cross product of a distance
(from the axis of rotation) and a momentum, so you have to use
units accordingly. In the SI, that would be meters x kilograms x
meters / second, which you can simplify to meters squared x
kilograms / second. This is equivalent to joules x seconds.
