let's use and as the given constants to minimize the confusion of the notation.
if this is ...
show that the particle goes through the point P(4,-4,8)r[0].
common solution for all three equations is
vector r of a moving particle has the equation with respect to the origin of:
r(t) = (r[0]/t^2[0])(t^2i - 2tt[0]j + (t^2 + 2tt[0])k) where r[0] and t[0] are constants
show that the particle goes through the point P(4,-4,8)r[0]. at what time does it do this?
what I did is i subbed (4,-4,8) into the equation but it didnt make anything clear to me, anyone any advice on how to tackle this problem?
Anyone know how id go about this, i need to find this part to complete parts b) and c) of which i know how to do which is the frustrating part!
i got the following:
r(4,-4,8)= (r[0]/t[0])*(16i/t[0] + 8j + (64/t[0] +16)k)?
