When a wheel of radius R rotates about a fixed axis, do all points on the wheel have
1) The same angular velocity? Explain.
2) The same linear velocity? Explain. If the angular velocity is constant,
3) describe the linear velocities and accelerations (radial, tangential, total) of the points at r = R/2 and r = R.
