suppose you're sitting on a rotating stool holding a 2kg mass in each outstretched hand, if you suddenly drop the masses, will your angular velocity increase, decrease or remain the same?
when net torque is 0, L=constant=Iw
The Attempt at a Solution
Since by dropping the masses, moment of inertia will decrease, to keep the angular momentum same w must increase. But my textbook says it'll remain the same. Why?
