## Homework Statement

consider a point on a bicycle wheel as the wheel turns about a fixed axis, neither speeding up nor slowing down. Compare the linear and angular velocities of the point. [The subsequent question asks about the linear and angular

**accelerations**

a. both are constant

b. only the angular velocity is constant

c. only the linear velocity is constant

d. neither is constant

## Homework Equations

v=rw

## The Attempt at a Solution

im debating between answers a. and b. I would think only the angular velocity is constant. "linear" velocity would change since the direction is always changing (making the velocity vector always changing). I'm not sure though whether linear velocity means a vector or not. Would this be the same for angular/linear acceleration?
