1) how to i figure out the new angle the ball should move in

2) how to convert that angle to x,y velocities

For the ball i want to have various speeds so i set up a speed variable that i multiply by the xv and yv variables to get the x and y increments. so I need the xv and yv variables to be 1 or below or -1 and above (obviously)

please help me. I've been trying to figure this out and i know trigonomitry is involved, but i haven't learned trig yet...
