Consider a particle following the parametric equations

What is the speed of this particle? (You may assume it's constant at all times.)

Please help, and explain how to find the speed.

#2**+1 **

dx/ dt is the speed of the particle in the x direction = 2

dy/dt is the y direction speed = 3

Use pythagorean theorem to calculate the__ resultant __ speed = sqrt (2^2 + 3^2 ) = sqrt 13
