# Angular Momentum

## Intuitive

Explanations in this section should contain no formulas, but instead colloquial things like you would hear them during a coffee break or at a cocktail party.

## Abstract

The motto in this section is: the higher the level of abstraction, the better.

## Why is it interesting?

Angular momentum is together with energy and ordinary momentum one of the basic fundamentally conserved quantities in physics.

Angular momentum arises as a conserved quantity in every system which is rotational symmetric. This follows from Noether's theorem.
