PHY2048 Extra credit problem (CH1,2,3) Instructor: Lei Guo Student Name:__________ Student Panther ID_____________ An object is moving in a circular motion with a constant speed. The circle has its center at the origin, and the radius is r. Its x and y positions are both functions of time. Suppose you are given these functions: x(t)=rcos ω t and y(t)=r-rsin ω t (In later chapter we will learn what w means). Assume the value of ω t is between 0 and π /2 (90 0 ). For this object, a)What is the position vector r ( t ) in its component form at any given time t?(2pt)
