Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What i like most about this place is once i type my question here i see what i'm doing wrong. for anyone Googleing this, use the use the 8m/s as your X and 20m/s as your Y and Pythagorean out the magnitude and divide by time then Arctan the angle.
