In 9.7 s a fisherman winds 2.1 m of fishing line onto a reel whose radius is 30 cm (assumed to be constant as an approximation).

The line is reeled in at constant speed.

Determine the angular speed of the reel in rad/s.

Thank you.

The velocity of pulling in the line is is

V = w * R , which means

Linear speed = (Angular speed)*(Radius)

= 2.1m/9.7s = 0.2165 m/s

Angular speed = 0.2165/0.3

= 0.7216 rad/s

r = .30 meters

2 pi r = 1.88 m

2.1/1.88 = 1.11 revolutions

1.11 * 2 pi = 7 radians

7 radians / 9.7 s = .722 rad/s
