kinematics-please help me out

A balloon starts rising from the earth's surface.The ascension rate is constant and equal to vo.Due to the wind,the balloon gathers the horizontal velocity component vx=ky,where k is a constant and y is the height of ascent.Find how the total,tangential and normal accelerations of the balloon depend on the height of ascent.
