The vertical red line is 0.5 units and it is opposite the angle that you want

 

The horozontal part of the right triangle is 0.87 units long and that is the adjacent side.

 

tan = opp/hyp

 

so

 

tan(v)  =  0.5 / 0.87

 

v = atan(0.5/0.87)

 

atan(0.5/0.87) = 29.886526940424

 

v=29.88 degrees
