Two wheels are rolling and moving toward the right at the same speed without slipping or skidding. The top wheel is larger than the bottom wheel. The rolling action is purposely hidden by the uniform red color of each, but here's the question: how does the spin speed of each wheel compare?
both wheels spin at the same speed
bigger wheel spins slower/smaller wheel spins faster
bigger wheel spins faster/smaller wheel spins slower
