Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Me on Monday, September 26, 2011 at 8:19pm.

A sailboat is traveling east at 8.0 m/s. A sudden gust of wind gives the boat an acceleration a = (1.30 m/s2 35 north of east). What is the boat's speed 10.0 seconds later when the gust subsides?

What is the boat's direction (in deg) 10.0 seconds later when the gust subsides?

I somehow got the first question right but don't fully understand how and I am completely confused on how to do the last question.
