Re: velocity

Change in velocity? Do you mean instantenous acceleration or average?

Re: velocity

hi Niharika

Diagram below.  What is not clear to me is how you are supposed to express this.  (in terms of what coordinate system).

If I had this problem and no more information I would call the original vector V1 =  v.i   where i is a unit vector in that direction.  Then find V2 in terms of i and j.

Bob

ps.  Looking again at the diagram, it would probably have been better if I had put V1 going the other way so it is positive i, but too late.  I'm sure you can re-jig it yourself.  smile
