Can someone help me with this question please, I just keep getting it wrong!In this question, i and j are the standard unit vectors in the Ox and Oy directions.An object has initial position (2i – j) m and velocity (-i 4j) ms-1It has a constant acceleration of (2i 5j) ms-2Calculate the object’s velocity and position after four seconds.

What have you done? Since you're getting it wrong you must have something to show us.

sure. I've figured out how to get v, which I used the v=u+at formula for: v=-1i+4j+4(2i+5j) which equals 7i+24j. However when I try to work out r I get 12i+56j. I put it into the r=ut+1/2at^2 formula to get this, but that's not the answer.

Did you add on the initial position to your calculated displacement?
