A pair of fuzzy dice are hanging by a string in my car from the rear-view mirror. I hit the gas pedal, and while I accelerate the fuzzy dice no longer hang straight down, but instead make an angle θ of 15 degrees with respect to the vertical. How fast am I accelerating in m/s2?

Details and assumptions
The acceleration of gravity is −9.8 m/s2.
Treat the fuzzy dice as point masses.

    ma = Tsinθ
    mg= Tcosθ
    a/g =tanθ =>
    a=g• tanθ
