Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Christopher on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at 7:16pm.

Find the position and velocity of a particle at t=1.94 s if the particle is initially moving east at a speed of 19.8 m/s and experiences an acceleration of magnitude 4.08 m/s^2, directed west.

Magnitude and direction of the position.
magnitude-
direction- East of its original position

Magnitude and direction of the velocity.
magnitude-
direction- towards the east

I have figured out the directions for both of them, but I have been unable to figure out the magnitudes, I have tried many equations but none seem to work correctly. An answer with a detailed explanation is greatly appreciated.
