    A wheel of diameter 0.700 meters rolls without slipping. A point on the top of the wheel moves with a tangential speed of 2.00 m/s with respect to the ground.

    1. If the wheel suddenly stops spinning and skis along the ground then

    a. v=rω

    b. v>rω

    c. v<rω

    thank you

    You are supposed to make some attempt at the question before expecting any help.
    If you write down what you mean by v, r and w I think the question will answer itself.
