# Problem: A small toy airplane is flying in the xy-plane parallel to the ground. In the time interval t=0 to t=10.0 s, its velocity as a function of time is given by = (1.30m/s2 )ti + [13.0m/s -(2.002 )t]j.At what value of t is the velocity of the plane perpendicular to its acceleration?

A small toy airplane is flying in the xy-plane parallel to the ground. In the time interval t=0 to t=10.0 s, its velocity as a function of time is given by = (1.30m/s2 )ti + [13.0m/s -(2.002 )t]j.

At what value of t is the velocity of the plane perpendicular to its acceleration?
