Depending on the cat's flexibility and initial angular momentum, if any, the cat ... A
falling cat's terminal velocity is 100 km/h (60 mph) whereas that of a falling man in
... "The Str...
To understand how a cat can land on it's feet, you must first understand some ...
its legs increases its rotational inertia and thus slows the catï¿½s angular speed.
Why do cats always land on their feet? ... How can the cat right itself without
violating the conservation of angular momentum – i.e. how can it rotate in space

Nov 23, 2012 ... how cats almost always land on their feet ... This allows the cat to increase its
angular velocity in the front and decrease its angular velocity in ...
Mar 5, 2007 ... or, How Cats (Almost) Always Land on Their Feet ... Skaters use this conservation
of angular momentum to speed up their spins: large r, small v.
And because its body is flexible, the angular velocity of the front of the cat is ...
Now all four feet of the cat are pointing downward, and the cat is ready to land.
