(a) How long does it take the discus thrower's speed to get to 5.1 rad/s?

(b) How many revolutions does the thrower make to reach the speed of 5.1 rad/s in revolutions?

(c) What is the linear speed of the discus at 5.1 rad/s?

(d) What is the tangential acceleration of the discus thrower at this point?

(e) What is the magnitude of the centripetal acceleration of the discus thrown?

t= ω/ε=5.1/3.6 =1.42 s.

2•π•N=ε•t²/2 ,

N= ε•t²/4 •π =3.6•1.42²/4• π =0.58rev.

v= ω•R=5.1•1.2= 0.026 m/s

a(τ) = ε•R =3.6•1.2 =4.32 m/s²

a(centr.) = ω² •R= 5.1²•1.2=31.2 m/s²

a=sqrt{(a(τ))²+a(centr.)²} =

sqrt{4.32²+31.2²} =31.5 m/s²
