8. A dentist causes the bit of a high - speed drill to accelerate from an angular speed of 1.45*104 rad/s to an angular speed of 3.14*104 rad/s. In the process, the bit turns through 1.88*104 rad. Assuming a constant angular acceleration. how long would it take the bit to reach its maximum speed of 7.85 *104 rad/s, starting from rest?

5. At the local swimming hole, a favorite trick is to run horizontally off a cliff that is 5.3 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 1.8 rev/s. Ignore air resistance and determine the number of revolutions she makes while on the way down.

2. A certain CD has playing time of 76 minutes. When the music stars, the CD is rotating at an angular speed of 4.8* 102 revolutions per minute (rpm). At the end of the music, the CD is rotating at 2.1* 102 rpm. Find the magnitude of the average angular acceleration of the CD. Express your answer in rad/s 2.
