Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Friday, November 2, 2007 at 7:07pm.

Salmon, swimming up the Fraser river to their spawning grounds, leap over all sorts of obstacles. The unofficial salmon-altitude record is an amazing 3.58 m jump. Assuming the fish took off at 45.0, what was its speed on emerging from the water? Ignore friction.

This problem is driving me CRAZY. I've tried this many times, but I have a feeling I'm making it a lot harder than it really is. Could someone tell me which equations I need to use?
