Unformatted text preview: The speed is smallest when sin t is largest i.e. sin t = 1. It occurs
when t = π /2. At this time, the position of the bug is (5π, 1). The speed is largest when sin t is smallest;
that happens at the times t = 0 or π for which the position is then (0, 0) and (10π − 1, 0).
a) |M | = −12.
b) a = −5, b = 7.
