## 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
