Assume a projectile is launched from ground height over a flat plane, at an angle of 50 degrees above the horizontal with an initial speed of 100 m/s.

What is the initial velocity of the projectile parallel to the ground (in the x direction) and perpendicular to the ground (in the y direction)? Show all of your work.
