As Tony the fisherman reels in a "big one", he turns the spool on his fishing reel at the rate of 3.0 complete revolutions every second.?

A: If the radius of the reel is 3.5 cm , what is the linear speed of the fishing line as it is reeled in?

B:How would your answer to part A change if the radius of the reel were doubled?

    c = 2πr

    3.0 rev/sec (2πr/1rev) = 3(2pi*3.5cm)/1s

    = 65.9734 cm/s, rounds to 66. cm/s

    If radius doubled, linear speed is proportional and doubled.
