**Steve**, Monday, August 4, 2014 at 5:31amso, if we name the takeoff point as (0,0) we want the vertex of the parabola to be at (5,4.5)

The parabola can thus be written as

y = -0.18(x-5)^2 + 4.5

so, at x=0, y' = 1.8

That means the initial angle is θ=60.9°

Now you should be able to work out the velocity components, and at the top of the arc, only the x component matters.
