## Homework Statement

A ball is shot from the top of a building with an initial velocity of 15 at an angle = 45 above the horizontal. What are the x and y components of the initial velocity? If a nearby building is the same height and 59 m away, how far below the top of the building will the ball strike the nearby building?

## Homework Equations

Trig equations of sin and cos

sinTheta=opp/hyp cosTheta=adj/hyp

## The Attempt at a Solution

I thought the x component at initial velocity would be zero, and the y component was sin45=y/15, which I got to be 11; Either one of these or both are wrong, my homework doesn't tell me if one is right or not. Not sure how to approach this because I thought the sin for y was correct.
