I am really lost here :((adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The equation of motion X(t)=Ax Cos(wt-delta(x))

Y(t)=Ay Cos(wt-delta(y))

by shifting the origine of time ( t'=t+to where I need to figure out what is appropriate for time to ) and ( Delta=Delta(y)-Delta(x) )

I am suposed to find X(t)=Ax Cos(wt) and Y(t)=Ay Cos(wt-Delta)

I wish I could give some of my work but I cant even start it right now since I cannot think of the appropriate time (to) for X , I know that it can not be 0 because then I come to the same point again.

anyhelp appreciated

thanks
