The projectile rises to a maximum height of ∆y above the end of the cannon’s barrel and strikes the ground a horizontal distance ∆x past the end of the cannon’s barrel.

----Find the vertical component of the initial

velocity at the end of the cannon’s barrel,

where the projectile begins its trajectory. The

acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s

2

.

Answer in units of m/s
