Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution to 25DQ No, the linear momentum is not conserved. Angular momentum of a body is conserved because the central force acting on the circus acrobat i.e the gravitational force does not contribute to the torque. Thus, when the circus acrobat changes the radius of rotation,...
