The Physics of Ice Skating. The process of pulling in the arms and free leg close to the body increases the speed of the spin. All spins start with a process that uses a torque maneuver hook to generate angular momentum and then pulling the arms and free leg closer to the body reduces the moment of inertia. The rotation of spin increases to conserve angular momentum.
A skater can increase rotational speed in a spin by pulling in the hands tightly to body. Rotation can be slowed or stopped by extending the hands and free leg out to check the rotational force of the spin allowing the core body to achieve stability for a controlled exit.
