A particle moving at a velocity of 5.2 m/s in

the positive x direction is given an accelera-

tion of 5.3 m/s2 in the positive y direction for

9.9 s.

What is the final speed of the particle?

Answer in units of m/s

3. The attempt at a solution

I multiplied the acceleration by the time to get velocity.

I found the resultant velocity between the two vectors which was 52.7. Is that the same as the final speed?
