To solve this, you need to know how much of his velocity is horizontal and how much is vertical.

Construct a right triangle, starting at the origin, with an angle of 17 degrees, and a hypotenuse of 9.43 m/s. Then use sine and cosine to find the x- and y-values for velocity.

Sin 17 = y/9.43 m/s and y = 2.76 m/s vertical

cos 17 = x/9.43 m/s and x = 9.02 m/s
