1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A bird is flying with a speed of 18.0 m/s over water when it accidentally drops a 2.00 kg fish. If the altitude of the bird is 5.40 m and friction is disregarded, what is the speed of the fish when it hits the water? 2. The attempt at a solution I tried v^2= 2(9.8)(5.4) but didn't get the correct answer.
