Solution

h/2π

According to Bohr's atomic theory, the orbital angular momentum of an electron is an integral multiplt of h/2π.
∴ `L_u = (nh)/(2pi)`

Here,
n = Principal quantum number

The minimum value of n is 1.
Thus, the minimum value of the orbital angular momentum of the electron in a hydrogen atom is given by
`L = h/(2pi)`
