Problem 21 Medium Difficulty

Describe the motion of a particle with position $ (x, y) $ as $ t $ varies in a given interval.

$ x = 5\sin t $, $ \; y = 2\cos t $, $ \; -\pi \leqslant t \leqslant 5\pi $


$x=5 \sin t, y=2 \cos t \Rightarrow \sin t=\frac{x}{5}, \cos t=\frac{y}{2} \cdot \sin ^{2} t+\cos ^{2} t=1 \Rightarrow\left(\frac{x}{5}\right)^{2}+\left(\frac{y}{2}\right)^{2}=1 .$ The motion of the
particle takes place on an ellipse centered at $(0,0) .$ As $t$ goes from $-\pi$ to $5 \pi,$ the particle starts at the point (0,-2) and moves
clockwise around the ellipse 3 times.

the problem isthe describes a motion for particle with tradition acts. Why asked worries in given into war First half ax over five squire us fly over. She was squire. It's equal to one. This is on your lips and we can sketch the graph as follows. It is a negative five Far negative two hundred two on day one. He is too negative. Pie, We have axe to zero. Why you go to negative two zero Negative too. So this pond Monty is a go to zero. We're half axe. Go to zero. And why he called you too. Auntie is equal to negative high over too. Accessing a connective off. Why secret with Cyril? Over half my anti virus, from neck to pie to pie. So article goes from this point in this direction on DH back to this point. This is what she virus from neck to try to find the particle. Because from this point, this direction back to this point. And then I want to last two high two three pie. So the particle goes from this point in this direction on DH, then back to this point. Andi, want tea? Last two three pie to file pie. The particle goes from this point, this direction and back to this point
