Here, we have the *x*- and *y*-components of the position of P given as explicit functions of time. You can differentiate these expressions directly with respect to time for determine the components of velocity and acceleration.

The angles for these two vectors, *γ* and *β,* can be found directly from trig once the x- and y-components of the vectors are known.
