A projectile of mass 0.46 kg is shot from a cannon, at height 6.8 m, as shown in the ﬁgure, with an initial velocity vi having a horizontal component of 7.1m/s.
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

.
----Determine the maximum height the projectile
achieves after leaving the end of the cannon’s
barrel.
----Find the magnitude of the velocity vector
when the projectile hits the ground.
----Find the magnitude of the angle (with respect
to horizontal) the projectile makes when impacting the ground.
-----Find the range of the projectile from the time it leaves the barrel until it hits the ground.

It seems to me that the angle needs to be known. Is that in the diagram?
