1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A grasshopper jumps 1.00 m from rest, with an initial velocity at a 45.0 degree angle with respect to the horizontal. Find a. the initial speed of the grasshopper (the answer is 3.13 m/s) and b. the maximum height reached ( the answer is .250 meters). 2. Relevant equations V naught of x= v naught (hyp. of v. vectors) times cos (projection angle) It should all be derived from the basic mechanic equations; V= vnaught times time + a times time Delta x= vnaught times time + .5 a times time squared v squared= v naught squared + 2a delta x I suspect they want me to use the cosine and sine versions but I need the steps so I can truly understand what I'm looking for! 3. The attempt at a solution I keep getting zero I don't understand Can somebody please give me all the steps for this problem and what formulas to use if I don't have them. I can crunch the numbers but for some reason I have a mental block on this problem. I don't even get how if it starts at rest, it can have any other value but zero.
