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.

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

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.
