A bird is flying with a speed of 12.0 m/s over water when it accidentally drops a 2.30 kg fish.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s2 .
If the altitude of the bird is 8.20 m and air resistance is disregarded, what is the speed of the fish when it hits the water?
Answer in units of m/s.

    The speed of the fish at water is a vector combination of the intial horizontal speed, and the terminal vertical speed. I will be happy to check your work.
