## Homework Equations

In the working out.

## The Attempt at a Solution

So for the first part i wrote F=Mx^.. (X double dot).
I also stated that if there was no force acting on the particle then the particle would stay at a constant speed V if we ignored instances such as the particle being on a slope.

For the second part i wrote (Im using X to denote x hat (x^^), same applied with y.)

F_x X + F_y Y = m x^.. X + m y^.. Y

=> x^.. = 2 , y^.. = 3x^2

Now for the third part when writing down the inital conditions this is where i become confused. Shall i write it in plain english such as;

At time equal to 0, this displacement of the particle x^.. will be 0.

Im not too sure how to answer that part, or the last part.

Any help is greatly appricated cheers people :)
