I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what formulas to use solving this problem. My professor gave me(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); the answer(as a way to check our answers) : 1.48 m/s^2 inward and 29.9 degrees backward

The problem is: A train slows down as it rounds a sharp horizontal turn slowing from 90.0km/h to 50.0km/h in the 15.0s that it takes to round the bend. The radius of the curve is 150m. Compute the acceleration at the moment the train reaches 50.0km/her. Assume it continues to slow down at this rate.

Thank you in advance for helping me!
