# Question

Assume that a 1.00-kg ball is thrown solely by the action of the forearm, which rotates about the elbow joint under the action of the triceps muscle, Fig. 8-45. The ball is accelerated uniformly from rest to 10.0m/s in 0.350s, at which point it is released. Calculate

(a) The angular acceleration of the arm, and

(b) The force required of the triceps muscle. Assume that the forearm has a mass of 3.70 kg and rotates like a uniform rod about an axis at its end.
