9 2.7 The equation ( 29 2 /10 4 j t t e - π = + R defines the position of a point. In which direction is the position vector rotating? Where is the point located when t = 0? What is the next value t can have if the direction of the position vector is to be the same as it is when t = 0? What is the displacement from the first position of the point to the second? Since the polar angle for the position vector is /10 j t θ = - π , then / d dt θ is negative and therefore the position vector is rotating clockwise. Ans.

### What students are saying

• 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.
