Homework Help: AP physics

Posted by Tifna on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 3:24am.

Suppose a Chinook salmon needs to jump a waterfall that is 1.50 m high. If the fish starts from a distance 1.00 m from the base of the ledge over which the waterfall flows, find the x- and y-components of the initial velocity the salmon would need to just reach the ledge at the top of its trajectory. Can the fish make this jump? (Remember that a Chinook salmon can jump out of the water with a speed of 6.26 m/s.)

Could someone please help me with this question? Thanks alot
