1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data #26 (on attachment). 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 17.0 m/s in a direction of 68 degrees NW. What is the magnitude of the ostrich's velocity component that is directed (a) due north and (b) due west? 2. Relevant equations R2 = A2 + B2 – 2ABcosθ x: (hyp)(cosθ) y: (hyp)(sinθ) 3. The attempt at a solution I have no idea what do to. This is my summer assignment for ap physics and ive not taken pre-cal or cal or physics before so im confused. i have a couple more problems like this that im confused in, but thats a different thread..
