Determine the vertical component of a baseball's velocity if the ball is thrown at 28 m/sec at an angle of 37 degrees with the horizontal.
The answer is 21.2 m/sec but I have no clue on how to solve this problem.

bobpursley,
draw the figure. The vertical component is 28sin37, the horizontal component is 28cos37

confused,
Thanks,
my book provides the answer as 21.2 m/sec, I calculated the vertical component 28sin37=16.85 but since it did not match the correct answer I thought I needed another step. There has to be because your answer isn't even a choice.
