velocityFromAngle(angle, [speed], [vec2])

Given the angle (in degrees) and speed calculate the velocity and return it as a vector, or set it to the given vector object. One way to use this is: velocityFromAngle(angle, 200, sprite.body.velocity) which will set the values directly to the sprite's velocity and not create a new vector object.

name | type | arguments | Default | description |
---|---|---|---|---|

angle | number |
The angle in degrees calculated in clockwise positive direction (down = 90 degrees positive, right = 0 degrees positive, up = 90 degrees negative) |
||

speed | number | <optional> | 60 |
The speed it will move, in pixels per second squared. |

vec2 | Phaser.Math.Vector2 | <optional> |
The Vector2 in which the x and y properties will be set to the calculated velocity. |

The Vector2 that stores the velocity.
