After the cockroach has completed its walk, its position (relative to the axis) is rR f 1 2 = so the final angular momentum of the system is R ff f = F H G I K J + 1 2 2 2 2 1 2 . Then from L f = L i we obtain f 1 4 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 2 2 + F H G I K J F H G I K J .

(b) We substitute I = L / into KI = 1 2 2 and obtain KL = 1 2 . Since we have L i = L f , the kinetic energy ratio becomes /2 1.33. f L K = (c) The cockroach does positive work while walking toward the center of the disk, increasing the total kinetic energy of the system.
