Step 1

Consider the direction diagram given in the question.

As the car is travelling south-west, car’s velocity direction can be written as below. Let v be the magnitude of velocity. Write the vector direction according to the direction diagram.

Step 2

Also, the person is standing due east of the car. Write the position vector of the person with respect to the origin.

Step 3

Write the expression of angular momentum about a point in vector form. Let m... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseL r x P ( DD)x ( BB) = mvr E fullscreen
