I have just started studying my first physics class this year, and I am stuck on 1 question relating to vectors. I think my problem is understanding the question, I have completed all the other questions in the section fairly easily. This is the question I am stuck on.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A stone is thrown horizontally with an initial velocity of 5ms-1. What is the magnitude and direction of its velocity 0.2s later? Take the acceleration of free fall to be 9.8ms-2 and ignore friction.

The book has the answers, but it doens't show working out. but I have not been able to figure out how to do this one. Any help? Please? Show any workings. Thanks.
