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 ?
Conservation of angular momentum:
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 ??
