The angular momentum of a rigid object is defined as the product of the moment of inertia and the angular velocity . It is analogous to linear momentum and is subject to the fundamental constraints of the conservation of angular momentum principle if there is no external torque on the object. Angular momentum is a vector quantity. It is derivable from the expression for the angular momentum of a particle:  L = I \times \omega
