(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The two linear simple harmonic motions of equal amplitudes , and angular frequencies ω and 2ω are imposed on a particle along the axes of X and Y respectively. If the initial phase difference between them is π/2 , then find the resultant path followed by the particle.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried solving question using x= a sinωt

And other is y=a sin(2ωt + π/2)

Solving them , I get the wrong answer in terms of x and y....

Please help !!

Thanks in advance...
