Unit 8, Activity 6, Modeling Motion using Parametric EquationsBlackline Masters, Advanced Math – Pre-Calculus Page Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum, Revised 2008 265Part III. 1. Consider two objects in motion over the time interval 0 ≤t ≤2π. The position of the first object is described by the parametric equationsxtt123==cossinand y1. The position of the second object is described by the parametric equations t213=+−sincosand . At what times do they collide? Set 21xx=and 21yy=and solve the resulting system of equations. The objects collide when t = 23π. This occurs at the point (0, -3). Graphing the two parametric equations shows another point of intersection but it is not a point of
