Homework Help: physics

Posted by micheal on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 8:38pm.

A Chinook (King) salmon (Genus Oncorynchus) can jump out of water with a speed of 5.95 m/s. (See Problem 4.9, page 111 for an investigation of how the fish can leave the water at a higher speed that it can swim underwater.) If the salmon is in a stream with water speed equal to 1.45 m/s, how high in the air can the fish jump if it leaves the water traveling vertically upwards relative to the Earth?
