QUESTION 6 Two astronauts, each with a mass of 65 kg, are connected by a 11 m massless rope. Initially they are rotating around their center of mass with an angular velocity of x radis. One of the astronauts then pulls on the rope shortening the distance between the two astronauts to 1 m. If the change in the rotational kinetic energy of this system is 308.2 J. what is the angular velocity (in rad/s)? You may model each astronaut as a point particle.
