### Noether’s Theorem + Equivalence Principle = c-global (part II)

##### Posted by Otto E. Rössler in categories: existential risks, particle physics

The conserved angular momentum *L* obeys a simple formula for a constant vertical (or else horizontal) rotation axis of the wheel:

*L = ω m r^2*

Since this expression is hard to remember by heart, the word “*L’hombre*” can help even though it is not high-Spanish. *ω* is the rotation rate, *m* the mass and *r* the radius of Noether’s frictionlessly rotating bicycle wheel.

If *ω* is halved (as on the surface of a neutron star), what about *m* and* r* , the other two components of the conserved *L* ?
