Calculate the Horizontal and Vertical Components
A jet aircraft pulls up into a vertical curve as shown in the figure. As it passes the position where Θ = 30°, its speed is 1000 km/h and is decreasing at the rate of 15 km/h per second. If the radius of curvature ρ of the flight path is 1.5 km at this point, calculate the corresponding horizontal and vertical components, x and Ÿ , of the acceleration of the aircraft.
