# How to use vector components when finding resultant velocity?!? watch

1. Hey guys, this is Q4 from the June 14 AQA m1b paper:

I'm really stuck on how components are used in this question - why do we use 20/sin(70) to find time? This doesn't make any sense to me

Haven't really looked at it, but maybe the sine rule?

Thanks for the response I get why and how to use sine rule for the latter part of the question. I just don't understand why, to use the speed =d*t equation for a) that I need to use sin(70)*2 for velocity?
