| __The Biomechanics of Skating: Conservation of Angular Momentum__ *(Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)* |

| | For example, it is important to understand the concepts of force, **angular** **displacement**, **angular** velocity, and momentum to fully comprehend the analysis of the figure skating jumps and spins. |

| | The objectives of this unit is to use example from figure skating to become familiar with the concept of conservation of **angular** momentum, to be able to solve basic **angular** momentum problems, and to learn great examples from figure skating for teaching the conservation of **angular** momentum to your students. |

| | Conservation of **angular** momentum is the principle that the **angular** momentum of an object remains constant as long as no external torque, or moment, acts on that object. |
