an ice skater spins about a vertical axis at an angular speed of 15 rad/s when her arms are outstreched . she then quickly pulls her arms into her sides in a very small time interval so that the frictional force due to ice are negligible.her initial moment of inertia about the axis of rotation is 1.72kgm^2 and her final moment of inertia is 0.061kgm^2. what is the change in her angular speed? what is the change in her kinetic energy?explain this change in kinetic energy.
