Answer. Posted on Thursday, February 5, 2015.
If we take the mass of the polar ice cap and put it along the equator, we would expect it slows the Earth’s rotation.
J=Iω , where J is angular momentum stays constant as long as there is no outside disturbance, I is moment of inertia increases because of the mass redistribution and finally ω is angular velocity decreases according the formula.
