in quantum mechanics what is the difference between the physical significance of linear momentum and orbital angular momentum(because in quantum mechanics there is such things called orbit because if particle is moving orbit then momentum and position can be measured very accurately and that is not true for quantum particle)

    according to uncertainty principal product position and moment >h ,we can't measure any quntiy accurately we can measure product position and momentum

  • Chandra dhawan thankyou
    these are different bcoz of symmetries... one is translation in space which leads to linear momentum and second is homogeneity of space leads to angular momentum..

    you are saying particle is moving orbit so it gives rise to orbital angular momentum but that is wrong
  • Dhairya sharma
    dear....there are two types of angular momentum one is orbital and one is spin.

    what is the physical significance of orbital angular momentum
  • Mangesh
    because there is nothing such thing called orbit
