1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1. Folk wisdom says that a cat always lands on its feet. If a cat starts falling with its feet up, how can it land on its feet without violating the law of conservation of angular momentum ? 2. Is it easier to crawl radially outward or radially inward on a rotating merry-go-round ? Why ? 2. Relevant equations Conservation of angular momentum: 3. The attempt at a solution 1. I think by spinning around its center of mass but I am not sure. What do you guys think ? 2. I guess this one has to deal with conservation of angular momentum but I don't know how to start it. Any hint ??
