**[SOLVED] Physics - HELP!**

Hey guys,

Currently taking Grade 12 Advanced Placement Physics. I'm craming for a kinetics test tomorrow, which I will do reasonably well. However, I am still stumped on solving Motion of 2 Dimensions using the "Component Technique". I am able solve it using the Sine and Cosine laws, but I have to be able to solve it using both.

If anyone could help me out by taking a shot at explaining it, it would be very much appreicated.

A sample problem:

A passenger in a hot-air balloon throws a ball with an initial unknown velocity. The ball accelerates at 9.8m/s/s [down] for 2.0s, at which time its instantaneious velocity is 24m/s [45 degrees below the horizontal]. Determine the ball's initial velocity.

Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.
