Another explanation is that as both vortices rotate at the same angular velocity and direction, the inner vortex has lost angular momentum.

The decrease of angular momentum is transferred as kinetic energy to the outer vortex, resulting in separated flows of hot and cold gas.

A 2008 work shows that more than half of the spin of the proton stems from the motion of its quarks, and the missing spin is produced by the quarks' spatial angular momentum.

This work uses relativistic effects together with other QCD properties and explains how they boil down to an overall spatial angular momentum that is consistent with the experimental data.

It works by suppressing fluctuations and turmoil in quantum foam that supposedly causes momentum and inertia (similar to the concept of Higgs Bosons).

In step 4 it restricts you to orbits where initial and final momentum are the same i.e. periodic orbits.

Herapath postulated that the momentum of a particle in a gas is a measure of the absolute temperature of the gas.

The correct relationship is proportional to the absolute temperature, not its square, the error arising from his identification of momentum, rather than energy, with temperature.

As the revolt's initial momentum began to recede in mid-1926, bickering between opposition leaders, inside and outside of Syria, increased significantly.

Rob Sheffield called his performance "pure magic", while Miles McNutt said that his scenes were a "momentum killer".

Classically, the electromagnetic field surrounding them has a momentum density given by the Poynting vector, and it also has a total angular momentum, which is proportional to the product "q"e"q"m, and independent of the distance between them.

A similar formula holds for the momentum operator formula_27, in systems where it has continuous spectrum.

For example, to calculate the average momentum, one uses the momentum operator "in configuration space", formula_62.

George Mason opened the game on an 11–2 run and quickly took the momentum.

The most elemental form of the Navier–Stokes equations is obtained when the conservation relation is applied to momentum.

This equation is called the Cauchy momentum equation and describes the non-relativistic momentum conservation of "any" continuum that conserves mass.

For the special (but very common) case of incompressible flow, the momentum equations simplify significantly.

In a manner analogous to non-relativistic annihilation and creation operators and their commutators, these algebras lead to the physical interpretation that formula_10 creates a fermion of momentum p and spin s, and formula_11 creates an antifermion of momentum q and spin "r".

In classical mechanics, impulse (symbolized by J or Imp) is the change in linear momentum of a body.

A resultant force applied over a longer time therefore produces a bigger change in linear momentum than the same force applied briefly: the change in momentum is equal to the product of the average force and duration.

This is often called the impulse-momentum theorem.

Impulse has the same units (in the International System of Units, and dimensions as momentum.
