## Homework Statement

If a particle moves in X-Y plane with acceleration non zero in X and Y , the particle will not move in a parabolic path

True or False ?

## Homework Equations

X = UxT + 1/2(Ax)T^2

Y= UyT + 1/2 (Ay)T^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

The equation of trajectory that i came up with involved Y^2 , X^1/2 and X

I am not able to draw conclusions with it

So i guessed it to be True as for a parabolic path you need constant acc in only one axis and zero acc in other axis

But the book says false

Please help !
