Step 1
1 of 3

\begin{align*} &\vec{v}(t) = <\;-3 \cos^2 t \sin t,3 \sin^2 t \cos t, 3\;>\\ &|| \vec{v}(t) || = 3\sqrt{\cos^2t \sin^2t + 1}\\ &\vec{a}(t) = <\;-3\cos t(\cos^2 t -2\sin^2t) ,3\sin t(2\cos^2t - sin^2t), 0\;> \end{align*}

From part A we have the velocity vector, speed, and acceleration (to the left).
