I'm trying to help a friend with a physics problem. I've been helping her figure a few out(I always make sure she solves them and understands how she did) but we've hit one thats gotten us both stumped, so I'd appreciate a bit of assistance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem is basically, a Diver dives off a diving board so many meters above the water and hits the water at a certain angle and velocity, using this information we're supposed to figure out the initial velocity and angle. I didn't include the actual numbers because: 1- I dont recall them off the top of my head, and 2- I just want some help getting going in the right direction with this.

Where should I start?
