Question: Following a collision in outer space a copper disk at 850 C

Following a collision in outer space, a copper disk at 850°C is rotating about its axis with an angular speed of 25.0 rad/s. As the disk radiates infrared light, its temperature falls to 20.0°C. No external torque acts on the disk. (a) Does the angular speed change as the disk cools off? Explain why. (b) What is its angular speed at the lower temperature?
