Abstract

Angular momentum will be defined below for material bodies and in Chapter II for electromagnetic radiation. The transfer of angular momentum from either of these to the other can conceivably be detected and measured. In this chapter there is a general discussion of the problem. Details in history and theory along with the definition of angular momentum for electromagnetic radiation will be presented in the next two chapters.
