A sailboat is traveling east at 5m/s. A sudden gust of wind gives the boat an acceleration 0.8m/s^2 (40 degrees north of east).

1. What is the boat's speed 6 seconds later when the gust subsides?

2. What is the boat's direction 6 seconds later when the gust subsides?

2. Relevant equations

v = v0 + at

A^2 + B^2 = C^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm so stuck, please tell me what I did wrong.
