Hello chanchal

a)Given co-ordinate of the particle as ( 2t,t^2)

means at ny time  t....x = 2t   and y = t^2

i.e t = x/2     and so  y = ( x/2)^2   or   4y = x^2

Hence the trajectory of the particle is a parabola with equation  x^2 = 4y .....

b) x = 2t    dx/dt =  2

y=t^2   dy/dt  = 2t

So velocity at any time is (2,2t)   or in vector form   2i+ j.(2t)

c) x = 2t ....dx^2/dt^2 = 0

y = t^2  ....dy^2/dt^2 = 2

so acceleration at any time is (0,2) and ...in vectore form is writtenas 2j   ans

I hope you got the full solution ...any confusion ask furthure

With regards

Yagya

(X,Y)=(2t,t^2)

X=2t and Y=t^2

after solving these two eq we get

X^2=4Y(parabola)........equation of tragectory

any point can be represented as r(vector) = xi+yj

r=2ti + t^2j.............1

V(velocity vector)= dr/dt =2i + 2tj.........2

magnitude of V =2sqrt(1+t^2)

a(accleration vector)=dv/dt= 2j............3
