Vector uses in physics – Calculate velocity and acceleration – Exercise 3862

Exercise

A point moves along the curve

$$\vec{r}(t)=2\cos t\vec{i}+3\sin t\vec{j}+4t\vec{k}$$

Calculate the velocity and acceleration of the point in time

$$t=\frac{\pi}{2}$$

Final Answer

$$\vec{v}(t)=-2\sin t\vec{i}+3\cos t\vec{j}+4\vec{k}$$

$$\vec{v}(\frac{\pi}{2})=-2\vec{i}+4\vec{k}$$

$$\vec{a}(t)=-2\cos t\vec{i}-3\sin t\vec{j}+0\vec{k}$$

$$\vec{a}(\frac{\pi}{2})=-3\vec{j}$$
