(a) Magnitude of vector is $6\,\mathrm{m/s}$. (b) y-component of vector is $3.6\,\mathrm{m/s}$.
(a) The x-component is given by - $v_x=|v|\cos\theta$ where, $\theta$ is the angle of the vector to the x-axis. Here, $v_x=4.8\,\mathrm{m/s}$ and $\theta=37^{\circ}$. Thus, magnitude $|v|=\frac{v_x}{\cos \theta}=\frac{4.8}{\cos37^{\circ}}=6\,\mathrm{m/s}$ (b) The y-component is given by - $v_y=|v|\sin\theta=6\sin37^{\circ}=3.6\,\mathrm{m/s}$
