# Orbital angular momentum in the nucleon

Author(s): Gerald T. Garvey
Analysis of the measured value of the integrated d̄-ū asymmetry (I_{fas} = 0.147 ± 0.027) in the nucleon show it to arise from nucleon fluctuations into baryon plus pion. Requiring angular momentum conservation in these fluctuations shows the associated orbital angular momentum is equal to t…
