Law of conservation of angular momentum

Newton’s second law for rotational motion, 43476.png
So, if the net external torque on a particle (or system) is zero, then 43470.png
i.e., 43464.png = constant
Angular momentum of a system (may be particle or body) remains constant if resultant torque acting on it is zero.
As L = , so if 43458.png then = constant ⇒ I1/ω.
Since angular momentum remains constant, so when I decreases, angular velocity ω increases and vice versa.
