Homework Help: Compute the tangential acceleration

  1. Feb 18, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If the car starts at height h = 60.0 m and the radius is R = 15.0 m, compute the tangential acceleration of the passengers when the car is at point C, which is at the end of a horizontal diameter.
    Take the free fall acceleration to be g = 9.80 m/s^2.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Have tried a couple of solutions but have limited chances left. Don't want to get it wrong, any ideas?

    How did you figure it out? I'm completely lost.
