The speed of an object and the direction in which it moves constitute a vector quantity known as the velocity. An ostrich is running at a speed of 17.0m/s in a direction of 68.0 degrees north of west. What is the magnitude of the ostrich's velocity component that is directed at A. due north and B. due west?
