A man having a weight of 180 lb sits in a chair of the Ferris wheel, which has a weight of 15,000 lb and a radius of gyration of k_{o} = 37 ft. If a torque of M = 80(10^{3}) lb • ft is applied about O, determine the angular velocity of the wheel after it has rotated 180°. Neglect the weight of the chairs and note that the man remains in an upright position as the wheel rotates. The wheel starts from rest in the position shown.

[A].

= 0.888 rad/s

[B].

= 0.836 rad/s

[C].

= 0.874 rad/s

[D].

= 0.849 rad/s
