A badminton shuttle, or "birdie" is struck, giving it a horizontal velocity of 73m/s [W]. Air resistance causes a constant acceleration of 18m/s^2 [E]. Determine its velocity after 1.6s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've used the equation V2=V1+ax x t

V2= Final velocity

V1=initial velocity

A= Acceleration

t=time

The answer should be 44m/s [W] But I don't know how they got that. HELP PLEASE!!! :)
