Angular momentum and Area

Logo for Angular momentum and Area
It might seem surprising that a particle moving in a straight lines has angular momentum. Kepler's second law states: During equal time interval, the radius vector from the sun to a planet sweeps out equal area. Does a free particle moving in a straight lines sweep out equal area? (with respect to any origin.)

Although not very sophisticated or flexible, this applet does illustrate a principle not covered by most other applets and that gives many students trouble. Recommended.
