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.

I'm still confused. to find angular speed = tnngenital speed/radius, would the radii cancel out, leaving only the tangential speed? still confused as to set up
