A soccer ball is kicked with an initial speed of 5.9 m/s in a direction 24.0° above the horizontal. Find the magnitude and direction of its velocity at the following times. (Take the +x axis to be parallel to the ground, in the direction that the ball is kicked.)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) 0.250 s after being kicked

1 ___ m/s

2 ___ degrees (counterclockwise from the +x axis)

(b) 0.500 s after being kicked

1 ___ m/s

2 ___ degrees (counterclockwise from the +x axis)

vx = v0x +ax * t

vy= v0y + ay * t

cos24=x/5.9

1/2*-9.8*.25^2+2.4*.25 = .29

vx = 5.4 vy = .29

thats all I could figure out
