x=y2+2y+2
Differentiate with respect  to time t to obtain velocity components along x and y direction respectively.
vx=2yvy+2vy
where vx=dx/dt and vy=dy/dt.
Given vy=5m/s.
So vx=10y+10
Differentiate  again with respect  to  time  t  to  obtain  acceleration.
ax=10vy=50m/s2
Please approve the answer if helped.
