a soccer ball is kicked with an initial speed of 10.2 m/s in a direction 25 degrees above the horizontal. Find the magnitude and direction of its velocity 0.250 seconds and 0.500 seconds after being kicked. Is the ball at its gratest height before or after 0.500 seconds?

Did you not read the information you were told to read when you registered? You have posted three consecutive questions without showing any attemt to do them yourself. We will not give solutions and the only way we can give appropriate hints is to know what you do know about the problem, what equations you can use, and what you have already tried. You must show how you have attempted to solve this yourself.

Best solve your other problem first and this one will be easier to understand.
