A student on a piano stool rotates freely with an angular speed of 2.85rev/s . The student holds a 1.10kg mass in each outstretched arm, 0.789m from the axis of rotation. The combined moment of inertia of the student and the stool, ignoring the two masses, is 5.23kg⋅m2 , a value that remains constant.

--> As the student pulls his arms inward, his angular speed increases to 3.45rev/s . How far are the masses from the axis of rotation at this time, considering the masses to be points?

-->Calculate the initial kinetic energy of the system.

-->Calculate the final kinetic energy of the system.
