PHYSICS HELP PLEASE!

A baseball is thrown at an angle of 40.0° above
the horizontal. The horizontal component of the
baseball’s initial velocity is 12.0 meters per
second. What is the magnitude of the ball’s initial
velocity?

    V(cos(theta))=12
    V=12/sec40deg

    oops V=12/cos40deg

    isn't the degree of 40 already given though? Why don't you do 12sin40?

    sine would give you the vertical compnent, horizontal component is cosine times velocity
