A steel bicycle wheel (without the rubber tire) is rotating freely with an angular speed of 18.00 rad/s. The temperature of the wheel changes from 100.0 to +300.0 degrees Celcius. No net external torque acts on the wheel, and the mass of the spokes is negligible. (a) Does the angular speed increase or decrease as the wheel heats up? Why? (b) What is the angular speed at the higher temperature?
