An object moves at constant speed along a circular path in a horizontal xy plane,with the center at the origin.When the object is at [tex] x=-2m[/tex] its velocity is [tex]-(4m/s)[/tex] in the J (hat) direction. Give the objects velocity and acceleration when it is at y=2m.

the answers -(4ms) in the i (hat) direction and -(8ms^s) in the j (hat direction)
