A space vehicle is coasting at a constant velocity of 20.7 m/s in the +y direction relative to a space station. The pilot of the vehicle fires a RCS (reaction control system) thruster, which causes it to accelerate at 0.260 m/s2 in the +x direction. After 42.0 s, the pilot shuts off the RCS thruster. After the RCS thruster is turned off, find the following quantities.
(a) the magnitude of the vehicle's velocity
m/s

(b) the direction of the vehicle's velocity relative to the space station Express the direction as an angle measured from the +y direction.
to the right of the +y direction
