The coordinates of an object moving in the xy plane vary with time according to the following equations x = −7.16 sin ùt and y = 4.00 − 7.16 cos ùt, where ù is a constant, x and y are in meters, and t is in seconds. Write expressions for the position vector, the velocity vector, and the acceleration vector of the object at any time t > 0. (Use the following variables as necessary: omega for ù and t.)

For the position vector I got:
For the velocity vector I got:
For the acceleration vecotr I got:

I this correct or not? My homework is computer based and when I type this in, it marks it wrong. Please help.

  • college Physics -

    The only two things I see wrong is you have on acceleration the unit vector i inside the argument of the sin function, and on the lst part of the acceleration vector, you should have COSINE, not sine

    One error
    For the acceleration vector I got:

    should be

    For the acceleration vector I got:

    Note that
    acceleration = - omega^2 *( sin and cos components of displacement)
