Ice Skating Spin

A very interesting demonstration on angular momentum and velocity. If you've ever wondered why ice skaters are able to spin so quickly during their routines, this video explains it in scientific terms. By bringing one's arms in to the chest, the angular momentum is changed in a way that makes the velocity increase. Very good, and it'll make you dizzy just watching it.
