Description:

This web page is an interactive physics simulation relating to conservation of angular momentum in an orbiting object. The user can choose between an elliptical or circular orbit to observe why angular momentum is conserved in either case. This item is part of a larger collection of simulation-based activities developed for students of introductory physics.
