READING QUIZ 1. In curvilinear motion, the direction of the instantaneous velocity is always A) tangent to the hodograph. B) perpendicular to the hodograph. C) tangent to the path. D) perpendicular to the path. 2. In curvilinear motion, the direction of the instantaneous acceleration is always A) tangent to the hodograph. B) perpendicular to the hodograph. C) tangent to the path. D) perpendicular to the path.
APPLICATIONS The path of motion of each plane in this formation can be tracked with radar and their x, y, and z coordinates (relative to a point on earth) recorded as a function of time. How can we determine the velocity or acceleration of each plane at any instant? Should they be the same for each aircraft?

APPLICATIONS (continued) A roller coaster car travels down a fixed, helical path at a constant speed. How can we determine its position or acceleration at any instant? If you are designing the track, why is it important to be able to predict the acceleration of the car?
POSITION AND DISPLACEMENT A particle moving along a curved path undergoes curvilinear motion . Since the motion is often three-dimensional, vectors are used to describe the motion. A particle moves along a curve defined by the path function, s.

### 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.
