The vector v has a magnitude of 89.7 feet and a direction of
12(degree sign)48'. find the magnitude of its vertical component

a: 887.47 ft
b: 19.87 ft
c: 19.38 ft
d: 87.58 ft

Depending on whether the vector makes 12.8° with the horizontal or vertical, the vertical component is
89.7sin(12.8°) or 89.7cos(12.8°) respectively.
