I've found that: v(f)^2 = v(i)^2 -2g(y - y(i)) gives me 17.2 m/s. However, this way doesn't account for the angle, so I don't think it's the right way to solve this.

Physics
I've been using: v(f)^2 = v(i)sin(45)^2 - 2g(y-y(i)) Then I use: v = sqrt((v(f)^2 + v(i)^2) However, doing this gives me 18.6 m/s instead of 17.2 m/s. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
