I keep going around in circles with this. a little hint would be nice.A particle P, moving in a plane, has polar coordinates referred to the fixed pole O and the initial line in the plane
Given that the particle moves under a force directed towards towards O, show that at time t .
Where h is a constant
Many Thanks

As the force is directed towards the origin that does that mean that and similarly for or not ?
This is all new to me, I can't find anything about this in my books, would you mind pointing me to some reading material so I can learn how these results are derived?What do these equations look like in polar coordinates?
(Hint: The solution is
and
Make sure you know how to derive these.)
Many Thanks Dan
