Hello,
Could anyone help me with this problem?

"A hammer is hanging by a light rope from the ceiling of a bus. The ceiling of the bus is parallel to the roadway. The bus is travelling in a straight line on a horizontal street. You observe that hammer hangs at rest with respect to the bus when the angle between the rope and the ceiling of the bus is 74 degrees. What is the acceleration of the bus?"

Thank you very much

--Tedi

To get help, show us what you've come up with so far. (Hint: Analyze the forces acting on the hammer. Use Newton's 2nd law.)
