Answer

The angular momentum will always equal mvb.

Work Step by Step

We know that the momentum is always equal to m times v times the distance from the center of mass times the sine of theta. The distance from the center of mass times the sine of theta is always constant, so we can find that the angular momentum is always: $L=mvbsin90^{\circ}=mvb$
