$\frac{1}{w^3}$
We start with the given expression: $\frac{w^2}{w^5}$ To divide powers with the same base, we subtract the exponents. When the larger power is in the denominator, we subtract the numerator's power from the denominator's power, and leave the term in the denominator: $\frac{1}{w^{5-2}}=\frac{1}{w^3}$
