A basketball player is balancing a spinning basketball on the tip of his finger. The angular velocity of the ball slows down from 18.0 to 14.7 rad/s, during the slow down the angular displacement is 85.4 rad. Determine the time it takes for the ball to slow down.

• physics -

t = 85.4rad/(18-14.7) = 25.9 s.
