As the blocks fall from above and stick on the turntable, the turntable slows down due to increased rotational inertia of the (turntable blocks) + system. Any torques between the turntable and the blocks are internal to the system, so angular momentum of the system is conserved. Visualize: The initial moment of inertia is 1 I and the final moment of inertia is
