2-D Particle Kinematics – Motion in n-t coordinates (1) Velocity: Direction - velocity is tangent to the path, so υ G is directed along the + t axis. Speed (magnitude of velocity) - ds dt υ = where s is the actual traveling distance along the trajectory (2) Acceleration: 2 2 ˆ ˆ t n t a a t a n a a a = + = + G n Tangential acceleration: t d a dt υ = .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
