a shot putter put the shoot with an initial velocity of 25m/s at an angle of 32 degree from the horizontal. determine the horizontal and vertical velocity of the shoot

Initial vertical velocity = 25 sin32
= 13.25 m/s
This component becomes less during the flight of the shot, as gravity accelerates it downward.
Horizontal velocity = 25 cos32 = 21.20 m/s
