Each question carries 5 marks. 1. [5 marks] At time t a particle has position vector r = t 2 i + ( t 2- t ) j + 4 t k . Calculate the velocity v and acceleration a of the particle at time t . At what time are the velocity and acceleration perpendicular? 2. [5 marks] Consider the matrix A = 2 3 1-1 . Compute A- 1 and hence solve the simultaneous equations 2 x + 3 y = 4 , x- y =- 3 ....
