Physics Problem?

The position of a particle as a function of time is given by r =( 6.5 i^+ 2.1 j^)t2m, where t is in seconds.

I need to find what is the particle s speed at t1 = 2.9 s ?

Update:

The answer was 40 m/s

    acceleration a = 2(6.5^2+2.1^2)^0,5

    V = a*t = 5.8*6.831 = 39.62 m/sec

    r =( 6.5 i^+ 2.1 j^)t2m, where t is in seconds.

    This gives

    x= 6.5 t^2, dx/dt= 13 t. After t=1.9, x velocity=24.7

    y=2.1 t^1, dy/dt=4.2, After 1.9, y velocity =7.98

    The msgnitude of velocity = swrt(vx^2+vy^2)=sqrt(24.7^2+7.98^2)=25.95 m/s

    Rules

    v = dr/dt

    speed = |v|
