Question

The angular velocity of a wheel rotating on a horizontal
axle points west. In what direction is the linear velocity of
a point on the top of the wheel? If the angular acceleration
points east, describe the tangential linear acceleration of this
point at the top of the wheel. Is the angular speed increasing
or decreasing?
