							Dear Shimi
We have,
Angular momentum = L = Iω
Where, I is the moment of inertia and ω is the angular velocity.
So frequency of revolution is, f = ω/2π
=> ω = 2πf
Kinetic energy, K = ½ Iω2 = ½ Lω =  ½ (2πfL) = πfL …………..(1)
Now, frequency is doubled, so, let f/ = 2f = 2(ω/2π) = ω/π
The kinetic energy is halved, so, K/ = K/2 = ½ (πfL)
If L/ is the new angular momentum, then using (1) we can write,
K/ = πf/L/
=> ½ (πfL) = π(2f)L/
=> L/ = L/4
So, angular momentum becomes one fourth of its original value.
