Conservation of angular momentum: central-force motion.

Logo for Conservation of angular momentum: central-force motion.
The energy method was developed to deal with one-dimensional problems, but it can be extended to deal with two-dimensional problems where angular momentum is conserved. Motion in a central force field, dealt with previously by the Feynman algorithm, is a good example

Fairly good description of the role angular momentum plays in central-force problems. However, this could just as easily been incorporated in a textbook.

Technical Remarks:

Applets are simple plots. No interactivity.
