    i know acceleration is change in velocity over change in time, but i'm not sure how to use the information provided to answer the question. Thanks in advance

    What i like most about this place is once i type my question here i see what i'm doing wrong. for anyone Googleing this, use the use the 8m/s as your X and -20m/s as your Y and Pythagorean out the magnitude and divide by time then Arc-tan the angle.
