A Ferris wheel with radius 11.0 m rotates at a constant rate, completing one revolution every 33.9 s. Suppose the Ferris wheel begins to decelerate at the rate of 0.227 rad/s2 when a passenger is at the top of the wheel. Find the magnitude and direction (in degrees below direction of travel) of the passenger's acceleration at that time.
