a) assume that all energy is conserved. what is the initial velocity with which the dolphin leaves the water? round your answer to the nearest hundredth. (Disregard water resistance; g=32f/s^2

b) Convert the initial velocity to mph. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth. (1 mile= 5,280 feet)

**bobpursley**, Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 11:49pmh=-.2d^2+2d

dh/dt=-.4d dd/dt+2dd/dt

so at max height, dh/dt=0

0=(-.4d+2)dd/dt

but dd/dt is the horizontalveloicy, it can be anything. d=5ft

So without knowing horizontal velocity, I dont know how you can solve for initial velocity.
