To make it as easy as possible, you should tell your friends to sit as close to the axis  of  rotation as they can. This will decrease the distance between the mass and the  axis of rotation, which  decreases the moment of inertia. A smaller moment of inertia

Unformatted text preview: requires a smaller force to generate the same angular acceleration. 4. The data graphs would have a smaller slope and an unchanged intercept. 5. The angular acceleration would increase, meaning the slope of the angular velocity versus time graph would increase. 6. The fluid from the inside of the raw egg exerts a torque on the egg, but the hardboiled egg doesnt have that torque. This is why the raw egg will start spinning again....
