A soccer ball is kicked with an initial speed of 19.6 m/s in a direction 23.0° above the horizontal. Find the magnitude and direction of its velocity at the following times. (Take the +x axis to be parallel to the ground, in the direction that the ball is kicked.)
(a) 0.250 s after being kicked
m/s
° (counterclockwise from the +x axis)

(b) 0.500 s after being kicked
m/s
° (counterclockwise from the +x axis)

(c) Is the ball at its greatest height before or after 0.500 s?
