1. For this problem, you'll need a bike wheel, the Classical Mechanics Notes, and some art. Hold each end of the axle with one hand, straight out in front of you, keeping your hands at the same level and your palms down, so the spokes are vertical. Spin it so that the top is approaching you.

(a) Sketch yourself holding the wheel. Show $\vec{\omega}$ and $\vec{L}$ on your sketch.
