## Homework Statement

A car speeds up as it turns from traveling due south to heading due east. When exactly halfway around the curve, the car's acceleration is 2.70 m/s^2, 10.0 degrees north of east.

What is the radial component of the acceleration at that point?

## Homework Equations

I have some equations in my notes but not sure which one to use.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am trying to study for a test. I got this problem and the answer but I have no clue where to start. Can someone help me?

I am assuming 2.70m/s^2 is the acceleration and I want to find the centrifugal acceleration right? Please help?

A: 2.21m/s^2
