Ok, here's a problem that stumps me. I'm not quite sure how to go about doing it...especially since there's an angle involved. I tried doing it before, but I forget what I tried...either way, the answer was wrong. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! )(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

----A mass M = 13.0 kg is suspended by a massless string from the ceiling of a van which is moving with constant acceleration a. If the string makes an angle theta = 11o with respect to the vertical, what is the acceleration a of the van?-------
