During the launch from a board, a divers angulad speed about her center of mass changes from zero to 5.4 rad/s in 450 ms. Her rotational inertia about her center of mass is 12 kg times m^2. During launch, what was the magnitude of her average angular accerlertation?

During the launch, what was the magnitude of the average external torque on her from the board?

  1. You have to use the basic definitions here:

    angular acceleration= changeangularvelocity/time

    torque=Inertia*angularacceleation.
