The Asian Silver Carp is an invasive species of fish which has infested a number of American rivers. The disturbance of passing boats has been known to make these fish leap large distances out of the water. One such fish leaps with an initial velocity at the water's surface of 11.0 m/s at an angle of 38.0° above the horizontal. How high above the water's surface does the fish reach?

  1. vertical speed: 11sin39

    max height:
    at the top, vf is zero, vi is vertical speed (above) at lauanch
    vf^2=vi^2+ 2g*height

    g=-9.8m/s^2
