A figure skater stands on one spot on the ice(assumed frictionless) and spins around with her arms extended. When she pulls in her arms, her moment of inertia decreases to 3/4 of the initial value. Assume that her spin angular momentum is conserved. What is the ratio of her final rotational kinetic energy to her initial rotational kinetic energy?
