A particle of mass m = 3kg moves in the xy plane under the influence of a force field having potential φ = 12x(3y - 4x)

The particle starts at a point with position vectorr= 10i- 10j.

a) set up the differential equations and conditions describing the motion.

b) solve th differential equations set up.

c) Find the position at any time.

d) Find the velocity at any time

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Really I can't do (a) and (b) but I know I would need it to solve (c) and (d)
