1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://steam.cs.ohio.edu/~cmourning/problem1.jpg If the image doesn't load (and it might not, although I'm not sure why), it can be found at: http://steam.cs.ohio.edu/~cmourning/problem1.jpg 2. Relevant equations Part of the problem is I'm not entirely sure what all the relevant equations are. This is a planar trajectory so the torsion is 0, so I've just included the first two Frenet-Serret equations at: http://steam.cs.ohio.edu/~cmourning/eqautions1.pdf 3. The attempt at a solution It is rather complicated equationally, so I felt more comfortable typing it in something other than this, you can find the work at: http://steam.cs.ohio.edu/~cmourning/physics1.pdf If I should put this somewhere else on the forums let me know, this is my first time.
