Dear Banjit,

Let,'a' be the magnitude of acceleration, 'x' be the angle between accelerations, and 'y' be the angle between resultant and one of the acceleration.
Then, tan y = a sin x / (a + acos x)  [ Standard formula in vectors]
tany = sinx/ (1+ cos x)........................(1)
If 'a' becomes 'a/2' then 'y' becomes 'y/2'
So, tan(y/2) = (a/2) sin x / (a + (a/2) cosx)
tan (y/2) = sinx / (2+cos x)
Also, tany = 2tan(y/2) /(1 - tan2 (y/2) )
Putting value of tan(y/2) in above eq. will give-
tan y = 2sinx (2+ cos x) / (2cos2x + 4cos x + 3)...................(2)
On comparing eq. (1) and (2), we get-
2(1 + cosx) (2+ cos x)  =  (2cos2x + 4cos x + 3)
or, cos x = 1/2
or, x= 600 [ANS]
