A big wheel of radius **R = 1.20 m** spins clockwise
at an initial angular speed of **3.90 rad/s**,
but it is gradually slowing down at an angular acceleration
of **-1.30 rad/s^2**.
Wrapped around the rim of the wheel is a rope,
from which a box hangs.

As you answer the questions below, please use unit vector notation. Every answer (except for part c) must be a VECTOR.

- What is the vector direction of the wheel's angular velocity?
- What is the initial velocity of the box?
- How long will it take the wheel to come to a stop?
- What is the total angular displacement of the wheel from now until it stops rotating?
- What is the total displacement of the box?
