Rotationial kinematics

A basketball player is balancing a spinning basketball on the tip of his finger. The angular velocity of the ball slows down from 18.5 to 14.1 rad/s. During the slow-down, the angular displacement is 85.1 rad. What is the time it takes for the ball to slow down?

Solution Summary

This solution provides the calculations for determining the time it takes a spinning ball to slow down.
