I have a problem in one my dynamics classes, I have a the velocity and accelerations of two points that are constrained to vertical motion. Point A has a velocity of 1m/s upwards and is decelerating at a rate of 4m/s2 and point B has a velocity of 2m/s downwards and is accelerating at 5m/s2. Now, I need to draw these in vector form. So I am trying to interpret this information as it is quite confusing to me. A obviously has a velocity vector straight upwards, but the acceleration vector which is decelerating, is this pointing downwards? B's velocity vector is downwards, and it is said to be accelerating, so I'm assuming that this means that it is accelerating in the direction of the velocity vector, so also downwards. Is this the correct way to interpret this situation? Thanks!
