I'm stuck on this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The initial conditions for a two-dimensional isotropic oscillator are as follows: t=0, x=A, y=4A, v=0i +3wAj (vector) where w is the angular frequency. Find x and y as functions of t.

Where do I even begin with this problem. I take it A = constant. Can anyone make this less intimadating?

thanks.
