Homework Statement
A Soccer player is running down the field with a ball at a speed of 4.0 m/s. He cuts to the right at an angle of 30.0^{o} to his original direction to receive a pass. If it takes him 3.0s to change is direction, what is his average acceleration during the turn?
Homework Equations
a = v / t
a^{2}+b^{2}=c^{2}
Sin, Cos, Tan ex. Cos 45^{o} = delta d1 / delta d2
The Attempt at a Solution
I have drawn the triangle In attachment.
The dotted lines are me making the triangle.
Then I broke the top triangle into a right angle triangle (in second attachment)
and now I am stuck.. I have never worked with angles in this type of problem and I need help.
Thanks,
Jason
