If a trapeze artist rotates twice each second while sailing through the air, and contracts to reduce her rotational inertia to one-third, how many rotations per second will result?

  • PHYSICS -

    According to the Law of conservation of angular momentum
    L1= L2,
    I1•ω1=I2•ω2.
    ω1=2πn1
    ω2=2πn2
    I2=I1/3.
    Then n2=(I1/I2)n1=3•2=6 s-1
