1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The system of small objects shown in the figure below is rotating at an angular speed of 2.0 rev/s. The objects are connected by light, flexible spokes that can be lengthened or shortened. What is the new angular speed if the spokes are shortened to 0.10 m? (An effect similar to that illustrated in this problem occurred in the early stages of the formation of our Galaxy. As the massive cloud of dust and gas that was the source of the stars and planets contracted, an initially small angular speed increased with time.) 3. The attempt at a solution I would think that you would just multiply 2.0 rev/s by the new length, 0.10m, which will give 0.20 rev/s. When I enter this, it tells me that my answer is off by a multiple of ten.
