Dynamics 19 Problem 2.7 Let E r D OEt O { C .2 C 3t C 2t 2 / O | ft describe the motion of a point P relative to the Cartesian frame of reference shown. Recalling that for any two vectors E p and E q we have that E p E q D j E p j jE q j cos ˇ , where ˇ is the angle formed by E p and E q , and recalling that the velocity vector is always tangent to the trajectory, determine the function .x/ describing the angle between the acceleration vector and the tangent to the path of P . Solution The velocity vector is the time derivative of the position vector: E v D OE1 O { C .3 C 4t/ O | ft = s : (1) The acceleration vector is the time derivative of the velocity vector: E a D 4 O | ft = s 2 : (2) is the angle between the acceleration vector and the tangent to the path of P: E a E v D ˇ ˇ E a ˇ ˇ ˇ ˇ E v ˇ ˇ cos : (3) From Eqs.

    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.
