One method of pitching a softball is called the "windmill" delivery method, in which the pitcher's arm rotates through approximately 360° in a vertical plane before the 198 gram ball is released at the lowest point of the circular motion. An experienced pitcher can throw a ball with a speed of 89.0 mi/h. Assume that the angular acceleration is uniform throughout the pitching motion, and take the distance between the softball and the shoulder joint to be 75.1 cm.
I found 89mph= 39.783m/s and the angular speed to be 8.4310rev/s. How do I find the angular acceleration from this?
