If you hold a cat upside down a moderate height off the floor and drop it, it manages to right itself in midair and land on its feet. Isn't this a violation of the conservation of angular momentum? After all, the cat starts upside down, and then it somehow rotates until it is right-side up. Which of the following is the most plausible explanation for this phenomenon? - Ans-By manipulating its body, a cat can control the moment of inertia of different parts of its body in such a way that it can reorient itself in midair despite the fact that its angular momentum is zero the whole time.

How much work have they done on the kite? - Ans-24,000 N • m A car is decelerating from 60 mph to 0 mph in 122 ft.
