🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Rasmussen's class at WSU.
Σkinetic energy = ΣTranslational kinetic energy + ΣRotational kinetic energy.
The rotational kinetic energy may be converted to translational kinetic energy without any change in Σkinetic energy. This inter-change changes the angular momentum of the system even though total kinetic energy is constant.
The angular momentum of a system remains constant when:
A. the total kinetic energy is constant
B. when no net external force acts on the system
C. when the linear momentum and the energy are constant
D. when no torque acts on the system
E. all the time since it is a conserved quantity
