Angular Variables and Tangential Variables

  1. Nov 23, 2007 #1
    In 8.4 s a fisherman winds 2.6 m of fishing line onto a reel whose radius is 3.0 cm (assumed to be constant as an approximation). The line is being reeled in at a constant speed. Determine the angular speed of the reel.
    dont know where to start?

    Start with this.

    If a disc spins, then the linear speed v of a pt on the circumference is given by v=r*w, where w(omega) is the angular speed of the disc.
