Solution

## The correct option is C 12mωd2Consider the situation shown in figure. The magnitude of the velocity of the ball A with respect to the centre O is v=ωd2. The angular momentum of the ball with respect to the axis is L1=mvr=m(ωd2)(d2)=14mωd2. The same is the angular momentum L2 of the second ball. The angular momentum of the system is equal to sum of these two angular momenta i.e., L=12 mωd2.
