What happens to the length of day when the polar ice caps of earth melt?the ans. is that it increases as Radius Of Gyration Increases so I increases so w(omega) decreases to make the Ang. MOmentum constant.BUT HOW DOES THE RADIUS OF GYRATION INCREASES???

 I think Radius of Gyration should decrease as it is inversely proportional to mass  as folrmula is  I=MK2 . . . so ice is lighter than water then M should increase therefore K  should decrease . . .
