Problem 10. Differentiation of a vector

The problem asks you to
calculate vector derivatives to get velocity and acceleration of a particle.
The problem gives
position vector of a particle in a plain elliptical orbit.

\bold{r} = 2b \sin \omega t \bold{i} + b \cos \omega t \bold{j}

We should know about
calculation of vector derivatives.
