Hi, I'm just beginner at physics and circular motion is really a new topic for me. I came across this problem in the opening chapter exercises. I glanced at the problems following this one and many of them are pretty much the same. I was just wondering if someone could please show me how to solve this problem, so I can use this as a guide when I solve similar problems of this chapter. Thank You.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: A particle moves along a circular path over a horizontal [tex]xy[/tex] coordinate system, at constant speed. At time [tex]t_1=4.00s[/tex], it is at point [tex](5.00m,6.00m)[/tex] with velocity [tex](3.00m/s)\vec{j}[/tex] and acceleration in the positive [tex]x[/tex] direction. At time [tex]t_2=10.0s[/tex], it has velocity [tex](-3.00m/s)\vec{i}[/tex] and acceleration in the positive [tex]y[/tex] direction. What are the coordinates of the center of the circular path?
