Math 321.001: Ordinary Differential Equations

Special Problem:

The graphic below shows an animation of a particle in the plane. The position of the particle is therefore given by a function (x(t), y(t)). Assuming the particle begins to move at t=0 and ends at t=5, sketch the graph of x(t) and y(t) as accurately as possible.
