A skier squats low and races down a(n) 11 degrees ski slope. During a 5 second interval, the skier accelerates at 2.3 m/s^2.

(A) What is the horizontal component of the skier's acceleration (perpendicular to the direction of free fall)? Answer in units of m/s^2.

(B) What is the vertical component of the skier's acceleration? Answer in units of m/s^2.

**Givens:**

11 degree ski slope, 5 seconds interval, acceleration = 2.3 m/s^2.
