is conserved as Russian figure skater
Evgeni Plushenko performs during the
2004 World Figure Skating Champion-
ships. When his arms and legs are close
to his body, his moment of inertia is
small and his angular speed is large. To
slow down for the finish of his spin, he
moves his arms and legs outward,
increasing his moment of inertia.
