## Homework Statement

The brave fish launches himself from a 6 cm cannon straight up in the air. When he leaves the cannon he is traveling at 6.5 m/s. assume constant acc while in the cannon.

How long was the fish in the cannon?

## Homework Equations

v^2=Vo^2+2ax

X= Xo + Vot + 1/2at^2

X=height

Xo=initial height

Vo=initial velocity

t=time

## The Attempt at a Solution

6.5^2=0^2+2a(.06)

a=352.08m/s^2

352.08=u-9.8 (u=up acc)

u=361.88m/s^2

x=1/2at^2

.06=1/2(361.88)t^2

t=.02sec
