To construct a perpendicular bisector of a line you use a compass and straight edge. The span of the compass must be greater that half the length of the line. Draw 2 arcs from each end of the line so that they intersect at 2 points , as below. Then draw the bisector through the 2 points of intersection.

How is it similar and different between the two?

what I'm doing is giving you the methods so you can do that part yourself.

To bisect an angle you put the point of the compass at A and draw an arc as shown

Now you place the point at B and draw an arc, then do the same at C so that the 2 arcs intersect. ( at D) Then you draw a line through A and D This lines bisects the angle A.

So you draw 3 arcs to bisect an angle but only 2 to bisect a line. That is one difference

And its similar in that you use a compass and straight edge in both cases.
