## Abstract

We present a simple two-dimensional model of a p_{x} + ip_{y} superfluid in which the mass flow that gives rise to the intrinsic angular momentum is easily calculated by numerical diagonalization of the Bogoliubov-de Gennes operator. We find that, at zero temperature and for constant director l, the mass flow closely follows the Ishikawa-Mermin-Muzikar formula j_{mass} = frac(1, 2) curl / (ρ ℏ l / 2).
