- Homework Statement
- An ice skater is spinning with a rotational speed of 1.5 rev/s. When he extends his arms and one leg, his rotational inertia increases by a factor of three. What is his final rotational speed?

- Relevant Equations
- Angular momentum is conserved

L = Iw

L (final) = L (initial)

I(initial)*w(initial) = I(final)*w(final)

I have no idea how to go about this. Any help would be appreciated thanks :)

Edit: I converted the 1.5 rev/s to rad/s = 9.4 rad/s
