17. Constant acceleration in both directions (xand y) allows us to use Table 2-1 for the motion along each direction. This can be handled individually (for Δxand Δy) or together with the unit-vector notation (for Δr). Where units are not shown, SI units are to be understood.(a) The velocity of the particle at any time tis given by GG Gvv at=+0, where Gv0is the initial velocity and Gais the (constant) acceleration. The xcomponent is vx= v0x+ axt= 3.00 – 1.00t, and the ycomponent isvy= v0y+ ayt= –0.500tsincev0y= 0. When the particle reaches its maximum
