A rabbit is moving in the positive x - direction at 2.00 m/s
when it spots a predator and accelerates to a velocity of
12.0 m/s along the negative y - axis, all in 1.50 s. Determine
(a) the x - component and (b) the y - component of the rabbit’s


Expert Answer

Step 1


The x component of the rabbit’s acceleration is,

Substitute the values,
