Unformatted text preview: v ( t ) = j v ( t ) j = q (3 t ) 2 + (4 t ) 2 = 5 t . The acceleration is a ( t ) = d v dt = 3 i + 4 j . The unit tangent vector is T ( t ) = 1 v ( t ) v ( t ) = 1 5 t (3 t i + 4 t j ) = 3 5 i + 4 5 j . Also d T dt = and & & & & d T dt & & & & = 0 so the curvature is & ( t ) = 1 v ( t ) & & & & d T dt & & & & = 1 5 t (0) = 0 . The tangential component of acceleration is a T ( t ) = dv dt = d dt (5 t ) = 5 and the normal component of acceleration is a N ( t ) = & ( t ) ( v ( t )) 2 = (0) (5 t ) 2 = 0 . 2...
