Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0compute the magnitude of the vector (i.e. Pythagoras theorem) as suggested by @shubham.bagrecha . Then use your equations of motion to determine speed using this magnitude.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 m/s^2 is about 1/2 g. If you fell for 7 seconds at 1 g your speed would be 72 m/s, so 37.8 doesn't seem to far off what you would expect given that acceleration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh wow well thanks :) could I use cosine to find the direction between 180 and 180 degrees?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could use \(\arctan(4.4/2.6)\) to find the angle between the direction of motion and the horizontal, which in this case is about 60\(^\circ\). But, it's not necessary to solve this problem.
