ok i have this problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A train traveling at a constant speed rounds a curve of radius 375 m. A chandelier suspended from the ceiling swings out to an angle of 18.0° throughout the turn. What is the speed of the train?

so far i have 9.8sin(18)=(v^2)/375

v^2/R being force

and i got V=33.7 but it was wrong and just for kicks i switched from sin to cos and i still got the wrong answer im not sure where i've gone wrong

thanks for your help,

johnny
