https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.A00353
Angular momentum, or moment of momentum of a particle about a point is a vector quantity equal to the vector product of the position vector of the particle and its momentum, $$L=r\times p$$. For special angular momenta of particles in atomic and molecular physics different symbols are used.
