Seen as i had difficulty understanding this little topic and with my AS level exam soon, i figured i should find somewhere to ask without having to wait while class, so here goes...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I had some questions to do (but this isn't about homework!!) i couldn't seem to be able to get the right answer and so i figure maybe my approach is wrong.

I understand that simple the horizontal component will be the speed x time, but everytime i try find the vertical component, at say X time (in a SHOW THAT question) i can't seem to be able to find the right answer, can anybody explain?

btw i did search for this topic, but no-one seemed to cover the area of it that im stuck with

thanks
