I keep getting 64.28 m/s as my answer, but it's not right. Could someone tell me exactly what I’m doing wrong?

**bobpursley**, Friday, November 9, 2007 at 8:24amFinal KE=1/2 m vi^2 + mgh

= 1/2 m 41^2 + m*9.8*190

1/2 m vf^2= 1/2 m( 3.55E5)

vf= 59.5m/s

**Lindsay**, Friday, November 9, 2007 at 8:32amWould 59.5 be the final answer?? B/c that is not right, either...

**bobpursley**, Friday, November 9, 2007 at 8:44amCheck my work. The initial velocity is given as two significant digits, so the final should be in ... digits.

**Lindsay**, Friday, November 9, 2007 at 9:02amI keep getting the same answer as you.

This is what I did to get my original answer:

V^2 = sqrt[Vx^2 + Vy^2] where...

Vx = 41 m/s * cos 38

Vy at impact can be calculated using

Vy^2 = (41 sin 38)^2 + 2 g H

I got 55.56 as my Vy. I have a feeling this is where I got messed up...
