Physics

For a scene in a movie, a stunt driver drives a 1.40x10^3 kg pickup truck with a length of 4.53 m around a circular curve with a radius of curvature of 0.333 km. The truck is to curve off the road, jump across a gully 10.0 m wide, and land on the other side 2.96 m below the initial side. What is the minimum centripetal acceleration the truck must have in going around the circular curve to clear the gully and land on the other side?
