Question 5.8

Q 5.8: The moon orbits the Earth so that the same side always faces the Earth. Determine the ratio of its spin angular momentum (about its own axis) and its orbital angular momentum. (In this case, treat the Moon as a particle orbiting the Earth). Distance between the Earth and the Moon is 3.85 * 10(8)m. Radius of the Moon is 1.74 * 10(6)m.
