# Fuzzy dice

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 of $$\theta=15^\circ$$ with respect to the vertical. How fast am I accelerating in $$\mbox{m/s}^2$$?

Details and assumptions

• The acceleration of gravity is $$-9.8~\mbox{m/s}^2$$.
• Treat the fuzzy dice as point masses.
