Uniform circular motion

Hi,

A quick question. There's a "check yourself" question in my textbook that asks what physical quantities remain constant during uniform circular motion. I've re-read the chapter twice, but can't find reference to what quantities remain constant in the text.

Intuition tells me angular velocity - is that correct, or are there any others?

Thanks for your time,

Yes, uniform circular motion means angular velocity is constant. So what does that mean for angular velocity? And what about other terms such as radius?
