(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Heres the problem, Ive done these kind of problems before but it has been about a year for me since Ive done one and I can't seem to remember how to anymore:

A pair of “fuzzy dice” hangs from a string attached to the rear view mirror of a race car moving with constant acceleration. Find the acceleration if the string makes a 70° angle with the vertical.

2. Relevant equations

F=MA

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure where to start other than I drew a triangle with a 70 degree angle. If someone could just please give me a place to start off from, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
