Question

# A diver makes 4 revolutions on the way from a 4.9 m platform above the water surface. Assuming zero initial vertical velocity, calculate the average angular velocity of the diver. [Take g=9.8 m/s2]

Correct Answer
A
8π rad/s
Your Answer
B
4π rad/s
Your Answer
C
2π rad/s
Your Answer
D
π rad/s

Solution

## The correct option is A 8π rad/sWe know that the average angular velocity is given by ¯ω=ΔθΔt Since the diver makes four revolutions, the angular displacement of the diver is Δθ=4×2π=8π rad Now, as the dimension of the diver is not mentioned here, we can consider it as a small particle falling freely under gravity. Time taken to fall is  Δt=√2hg=√2×4.99.8=1 sec Thus, average angular velocity is ¯ω=ΔθΔt=8π1=8π rad/s
