Vector Components

Equation

v_x = v cos(θ) | v_y = v sin(θ) | 
v_x | x-component of the velocity
v | speed
θ | angle
v_y | y-component of the velocity

Input values

speed | 10 m/s (meters per second)
angle | 30° (degrees)

Results

x-component of the velocity | 8.66 m/s (meters per second)
= 19.37 mph (miles per hour)
= 28.41 ft/s (feet per second)
y-component of the velocity | 5 m/s (meters per second)
= 11.18 mph (miles per hour)
= 16.4 ft/s (feet per second)
