Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a projectile that can only launch at 30 degrees and a target exactly 100m away at the same elevation on flat ground with 1g (9.8m/s2 meters per second per second?) What velocity without (then with) air resistance would the "muzzle velocity" need to be? (with a droplet shape for resistance)

I can't even figure out how to get started with a minimum mass and velocity to "just make it".
