(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A diver leaps from the top of a tower with an initial horizontal velocity of 5.0 m/s and an upward velocity of 2.0 m/s. Use a vector diagram to indicate the diver's horizontal and vertical velocity components 1.0s after he leaves the tower.

2. Relevant equations

x=v_{x}t

y= v_{y}t + 1/2gt^{2}

maybe v=d/t

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not exactly sure how to go about this problem. Do I just use the x and y formula, and that is all?

Vx= x/t

=5/1

=5

Vy= (y-1/2gt^{2})/t

=(2-1/2(9.8)(1)^{2})/1

=-2.9

Would those be right?
