Magnitude and direction of velocity

  1. Oct 27, 2009 #1
    Here is the tasks. We have e ballon flying from point A to point B. We have x-axis and y-axis.
    x=2t and y=x(power 2) / 30. t=2 seconds. I have to calculate the distance between A and B after 2 seconds. I have to calculate the magnitude and direction of velocity and acceleration.

    Can you help me to solve this problem?

    I know that i have to find the velosity along x-axis and velocity along y-axis. And then we use pithagor theorem and we find the velocity. Can you help me a little bit ? How to do that ?
