Best way to answer this is to draw a right triangle with the hypotenuse as 25 m/s, and the angle between the hypotenuse and the ground is 60°. so because you have H and an angle that's opposite to what you're looking for you use SOH sinx=o/h sin (60)=o/25 25sin (60)=o and that's you're answer in m/s o=21.7 m/s
