A car initially traveling eastward turns north by traveling in a circular path at uniform speed as in the figure below. The length of the arc ABC is 237 m, and the car completes the turn in 36.8 s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What I've got so far is that I should find the tangential acceleration at B, and then I can use sine and cosine to find the part of the acceleration in each direction, but I can't find the tangential acceleration.... any tips?

Thanks.
