Hello, I am having the worst time figuring out how to solve this problem: A student build and calibrates an acclerometer, which she uses to determine the speed of her car around a certain unbanked highway curve. The accelerometer is a plumb bob with a prtractor that she attaches to the roof of her car. A friend riding in the car with her observes that the plumb bob hangs at an angle of 15 degrees from the vertical when the car has a speed of 23m/s. What is the centripetal acceleration of the car? Ok, I have my force equations: The sum of the forces in the x=-Tcos75=-(mv^2)/r The sum of the forces in the y=Tsin75-mg=0 I substituted T for mv^2/r, so mass cancels out, but I can't seem to figure out where to go from there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
