Dear Abhingya

x=at2, y=bt

for locus of particle you need to replace t from the above equation


x=a (y/b)2



clearly it is a equation of parabola

why is kinetic energy not changing in a ciclular motion although we know that the velocity varies in a circular motion?
because centripital accleration remains constant. that is v^2/r. as v reamins constant. Drection only changes due to tangential accleration.
