A simple and practical understanding of conservation of momentum problems is given by the following: When a figure skater makes a jump, he increases his rotation speed by pulling together his arms and legs. This reduces his rotational inertia causing him to spin faster. If the initial spin rate of a figure skater is 1 RPM and he decreases his rotational inertia by half during the spin, what is his final spin rate?

By conservation of momentum
I1 w1 = I2 w2
I1 =I and I2 = I /2
w1 = 1 rpm and w2 =?
I * 1 = I/2* w2
w2 = rpm
