elica85

the motion of a particle is defined by the equations x=(2t+t^2) and y=(t^2) where t is in seconds. determine the normal and tangential components of the particle's velocity and acceleration when t=2s.

    i was able to get the speed although i don't know if i did it the right way. find dx/dt and dy/dt, plug in t=2, |v|=7.21m/s

    different the both equations with respect to time to find the equations of velocities in normal and tangential direction.... put t=2 to find value of velocty at that time......

    answer to a_n is 0.555m/s/s answer to a_t is 2.77m/s/s

    that's what i thought since a=second derivative of x(t)
