    You need to differentiate each component of the original vector to get the components of the differentiated vector.

    |dw:1349560630436:dw| is this right?

    No. 1. You forgot to multiply by the constant a. 2. The derivative of sin is cos, not -cos. Try again! :)

    Nope. Again: 1. You need to write it as a vector. 2. You forgot the a on the y-component (j-hat). Try again! Don't get discouraged. This takes time to fully understand. ;)

    Try writing it as (at - a sin t, a - a cos t). It makes it easier for me. Try that for yourself!

    No problem! Do you see the general method of this so that you can do similar problems in the future?

    By the way, you're a good learner, @spndsh (!!!)
