As the Sun nears the end of its life it will evolve into a red giant. The mass of the Sun will remain relatively unchanged, but the Sun will grow to approximately the current size of Earth's orbit ($215$ times the Sun's current radius). The Sun currently rotates once every 25 days.

By what factor will the Sun's angular momentum change as it grows into a red giant?
