Hi I really need help for this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A mass is tethered to a post and moves in a circular path of radius r=.35m

on an air table -friction free- at a constant speed v=18m/s.

We employ the coordinate system ( classic 2 dimension space).

If at t=0s the mass is at θ=0^{o},

a-what is the coordinates(x,y) of the mass at t=0.1s?

b-what is thye acceleration vector at t=0s?

c-what is the acceleration vector of the mass when θ=90^{o}?

Can someone help meI have noo idea!

the testbook give those answer

a-(0.15m,-0.32m)

b-(-9.3*10^{2}m/s^{2})i

c-(-9.3*10^{2}m/s^{2})j

But first, i need to understand what is going on in the problem.

Thank you for your help
