angular momentum.noun
angular momentum is rotational momentum; the vector product of the position vector from a reference point and the linear momentum of a particle; the product of the momentum of a rotating body and its distance from the axis of rotation; any rotating body has an angular momentum about its center of mass (angular momentum makes the Earth appear to go round, but nothing really moves); the vector sum of the angular momentums of each component particle of an extended body; angular momentum equals spiral spin; "Angular momentum of a rotating object depends on its speed of rotation, its mass and the distance of the mass from the axis. When a skater standing on a friction-free point spins faster and faster, angular momentum is conserved despite the increasing speed. At the start of the spin, the skater's arms are outstretched. Part of the mass is therefore at a large radius. As the skater's arms are lowered, thus decreasing their distance from the axis of rotation, the rotational speed must increase in order to maintain constant angular momentum."....Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.

Act of Union of 1840
the Act of Union passed in 1840 by the British Parliament united what was Canada at the time, which was the North American provinces of Upper and Lower Canada (which were, Canada West, which was Ontario and Canada East, which was Quebec). English was originally to be the only official language, but by grace of the English, French was allowed so that the French culture would not die. French Canadians protested because Ontario was given as many legislative seats as Quebec had, which, at the time, had a larger population. 

Parliament had created the two provinces in 1791 to separate British colonists, many of them Loyalist refugees from the American colonies now resident in Upper Canada; to separate them from a Roman Catholic, French speaking group in Lower Canada, so that the French could continue their culture without obligation to now change their language and customs.

The 1840 act provided for a single government headed by a royally appointed governor and a legislative assembly equally apportioned between the former divisions. The union created the Province of Canada, the sections being known as Canada East and Canada West. comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.

Articles of Confederation
was the first constitution of the United States of America. The Articles were in force from March 1, 1781 to June 21, 1788, when the present Constitution of the United States went into effect. The Articles were written in 1777 during the early part of the American Revolution by a committee of the Second Continental Congress of the former 13 British colonies. The head of the committee, John Dickinson, presented a report on the proposed articles to the Congress on July 12, 1776, eight days after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Dickinson initially proposed a strong central government, with control over the western lands, equal representation for the states and the power to levy taxes.

Because of their experience with Great Britain, the 13 states feared a powerful central government; consequently, they changed Dickinson's proposed articles drastically before they sent them to all the states for.ratification in November 1777. The Continental Congress had been careful to.give the states.as much independence as possible.and to.specify the limited functions of the federal government. Despite these precautions, several years passed before all the states ratified the articles.

The articles created a loose confederation of independent states that gave limited powers to a central government. The national government would consist of a single house of Congress, where each state would have one vote. Congress (the central government) had the power to set up a postal department, to estimate the costs of the government and request donations from the states, to raise armed forces and to control the development of the western territories. With the consent of nine of the thirteen states, Congress could also coin, borrow (like why borrow or appropriate money at interest, when they could create their own currency for the needs of the nation) or appropriate money as well as declare war and enter into treaties and alliances with foreign nations.
   Under this constitution the federal government was unable to levy taxes..Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
