(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A rigid body is rotating about a fixed axis through the origin. The angular velocity is [tex]\omega[/tex][tex]\hat{k}[/tex] where [tex]\omega[/tex] is positive. What is the unit vector in the direction of the velocity of a point on the body located on the positive y axis?

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, I'm pretty confused about what this is actually asking me [could be the time of night.] All I can think of that's applicable is the fact that angular velocity is the same for all points of a rigid body, so perhaps the answer is just [tex]\hat{j}[/tex]
