    Unit tangent vector, unit normal and tangential and normal componets of acceleration

    Unit tangent vector, unit normal and tangential and normal componets of acceleration-img_5408.jpg

    There is a part b) which asks to find the tangential and normal components of the acceleration vector. It would be appreciated if both parts could be answered.

    Hi theone1145,

    Do you have equations somewhere for T and N in terms of r? If so, what happens when you plug in this r(t) function?

    Thanks,
    Hollywood
