A fish takes the bait and pulls on the line with a force of 2.2 N. The fishing reel, which rotates counterclockwise without friction, is a solid cylinder of radius 0.049 m and mass 0.82 kg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the angular acceleration of the fishing reel?

I used angular acceleration = RT/I, and got 54.7536 rad/s^2, but the answer is not correct. Anyone know why? Thanks!
