10.32 What a Catch!

An 85.0kg baseball player who has leapt vertically into the air tocatch a line drive catches the ball as it is headed horizontallydirectly into his glove. The ball hasa mass of 145g and is headedperpendicular to his arm at 52.0m/s just before he catches it.

Just after he catches the ball with his arm extended horizontally,what is the player's angular speed about a vertical axis throughhis head and feet, assuming that hewas stationary at the instanthe caught it? To make the calculations reasonable, you can modelthe player's body as a uniform solid cylinder of mass73.0
