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

  • physics -

    3 rotations/sec, since the
    (moment of inertia)x(rotation rate) product must stay the same. It is a measure of angular momentum.
