A solid sphere is rotating in free space. If the radius of the sphere is increased keeping mass same which one of the following will not be affected?
moment of inertia
angular momentum
angular velocity
rotational kinetic energy
B.
angular momentum
In free space, neither acceleration due to gravity for external torque act on the rotating solid sphere. Therefore, taking the same mass of sphere if the radius is increased then a moment of inertia, rotational kinetic energy and angular velocity will change but according to the law of conservation of momentum, angular momentum will not change.
