Birds of prey typically rise upward on thermals. The paths these birds take may be spiral-like. You can model the spiral motion as uniform circular motion combined with a constant upward velocity. Assume the a bird completes a circle of radius 6.00 m every 5.00 s and rises vertically at a constant rate of 3.00 m/s. Determine the bird's direction of acceleration in degrees above the horizontal.
