The person makes a spin through the air, increasing the angular velocity from 3.0 to 5.0 rev/s while rotating through 1/2 revolution. How much time does this it take ?

**bobpursley**, Monday, December 21, 2009 at 7:55pmwfinal^2=winitial^2+ 2*angacceleration*displacement

displacement is PI radians

Wf=2PI*5rad/sec wi= 2PI*3 rad/sec

solve for angular dcceleration,then

angacceleration= (wf-wi)/time

and solve for time.
