Hello everyone, i just want to check to see if this derivative of the vector is right, I can't access maple and i don't have a ti-89 so i can't check!
here it is:

No. Look what happens to the i vector when you have t=3

Well, the thing is that it can go above 0... but how far?

Start looking at the equations and ask yourself where each one has a valid result. For example, the i component can be t=<2
