    in the mark scheme for 6a alt answer, the answer they give in is in radians when we are working with degrees, what's going on?

    when I put it in my calculator in degrees mode I get 15.128 instead of 15.7 :confused:

    There's no radians mentioned. It's all in degrees.

    Your 15.128 is the value of v_y. You need to combine that with v_x, using Pythagoras, to get v.

    Oops didn't read the part where it asked for the speed

    when I put the vertical component in my calculator in radians (instead of degrees) I got the right answer which was strange and put me off haha
