Work Step by Step

1) In order to maintain conservation of angular momentum, the wheel must go clockwise. 2) c) It will stay the same, for if it were not, angular momentum would not be constant. 3) It is going to reverse, for the direction you spin must be opposite the direction the wheel spins to maintain conservation of angular momentum.
