## Part 1#

A particle’s path follows the trajectory shown in the figure. Which of the following statements is correct?

• For $$x<0$$, the particle’s instantaneous acceleration is non-zero.

• For $$x<0$$, the particle’s instantaneous velocity is constant.

• For $$x<0$$, the particle’s instantaneous velocity is in the $$\hat{\imath}$$ and $$\hat{\jmath}$$ directions.

• For $$x<0$$, the particle’s instantaneous acceleration is in the $$-\hat{\imath}$$ and $$\hat{\jmath}$$ directions.

• No information about the particle’s velocity or acceleration can be found from its trajectory.
