Hello, I'm having a little trouble with this one problem I'm on. It gives me vector r = {2t i + 4t^2 j} ft and it asks me to determine the radial component and the transverse component of the particle's velocity at t = 2 s. I've already found the radial component of the velocity, v_r = 16.0 ft/s. But I can't figure out how to find the transverse component. I know v_theta = r(deriv. of theta), but I can't figure out where I'm supposed to get theta from. I've tried a couple of things, but neither of them worked. Is there anyone online that can help me?
