A figure skater spins on the ice, holding two weights a distance d from the axis about which he is rotating.  At a certain time, he pulls these weights toward his body as shown, causing his rotational inertia to decrease by a factor of 2.  How does this affect the maximum speed with which any part of his body moves?
