A figure skater spins with her arms outstretched with an angular speed of = rev/s (left figure).

The moment of inertia with her arms outstretched is I1= kg m2. She then pulls their arms in, as shown in the right figure, decreasing her moment of inertia to I2= kg m2. What is the skater's new rate of rotation?
