Combination of projectile and motion in two dimensions.

At the local swimming hole, a favorite trick is to run horizontally off a cliff that is 8.9 m above the water. One diver runs off the edge of the cliff, tucks into a "ball," and rotates on the way down with an average angular speed of 1.2 rev/s. Ignore air resistance and determine the number of revolutions she makes while on the way down.

Solution Summary

A diver jumps with horizontal velocity and rotates, the number of turns calculated.
