Vector Functions edit

Position edit

Velocity edit

Velocity is equal to the derivative of position with respects to time,  

Tangent and Normal Vectors edit

The Tangent Vector is the unit vector tangent to the motion,  . The Normal vector, similarly, is the unit vector normal to the motion,  

Acceleration edit

Acceleration is equal to the derivative of velocity with respects to time,
