# A bicycle is turned upside down while its owner repairs a flat tire. A friend spins the other wheel of radius 0.4 m and observes that drops of water fly off tangentially. She mea- sures the height reached by drops moving ver- tically. A drop that breaks loose from the tire on one turn rises 60.9 cm above the tangent point. A drop that breaks loose on the next turn rises 56 cm above the tangent point (the angular speed of the wheel is decreasing).
