i have a question, it is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A particle starts from the origin at t=o with an initial velocity having an x component of 21.8 m/s and a y component of -14.1 m/s. The particle moves in the xy plane with an x componet of acceleration only, given by 4.09 m/s^2. I need to find the speed of the particle after 8.59 s.

What I did:

i was goin to use the formula V = Vo + at but that is not correct for some reason
