    Tension in a string

    The angle was given. I haven't submitted it yet but after I had typed my above info I had an idea. I figured the acceleration on the air freshener could probably be considered the x-component of the acceleration and that gravity might be the y component. Even though I had used gravity before to...

    Tension in a string

    Homework Statement The problem I am working on seems simple but I can't seem to get the answer. Basically what I know is that a car accelerates from rest and a air freshener changes by 27.8 degrees. It first asked the acceleration which I thought was (g)sin(angle) so that came out to be about...
