A particle starting from the origin (0,0) moves in a straight line in the (x,y) plane. Its coordinates at a later time are  ( ). The path of the particle makes with the x -axis an angle of:

• 30o

• 45o C

• 60o C

• 00

C.

60o C

The slope of the path of the particle gives the measure of angle required.

Draw the situation as shown. OA represents the path of the particle starting from origin O (0,0). Draw a perpendicular from point A to X- axis. Let path pf the particle makes and angle θ with the x -axis, then

tan θ = slope of line OA
