Answer:

9.82 rads/sec

Explanation:

We are given;

Time taken; t = 1.6 secs

Number of somersaults = 2

Now, we know that,

1 revolution = 2π radians

And number of somersaults is the same thing as number of revolutions

So,

Total radians = 2π × 2 = 5π

Angular velocity = total number of revolutions/time period = 5π/1.6 = 9.82 rads/sec
