Read each statement below carefully and state, with reasons, if it is true or false:
The net acceleration of a particle in circular motion is always along the radius of the circle towards the centre
A particle starts from the origin at t = 0 s with a velocity of 10.0 `hatj "m/s"` and moves in the x-y plane with a constant acceleration of `(8.0 hati + 2.0 hatj) ms^(-2)`.
(a) At what time is the x-coordinate of the particle 16 m? What is the y-coordinate of the particle at that time?
(b) What is the speed of the particle at the time?
