To develop muscle tone, a woman lifts a 3.70 kg mass held in her hand. She uses her biceps muscle to flex the lower arm through an angle of 60.0°. Ignore gravity. (a) What is the angular acceleration if the mass is 24.0 cm from the elbow joint, her forearm having a moment of inertia of 0.250 kg · m2, and the muscle force being 760 N at an effective perpendicular lever arm of 2.50 cm? (b) How much work does she do?
