## Homework Statement

A grasshopper jumps 1.00 meters from rest, with an initial velocity at a 45.0° angle with respect to the horizontal. Find (a) the initial speed of the grasshopper and (b) the maximum height reached.

## Homework Equations

v

_{x}= v

_{0x}t = v

_{0}cos θ

_{0}

v

_{y}= v

_{0}sin θ

_{0}- gt

## The Attempt at a Solution

I was unsure what to do, so I resolved for the components, resulting in

v

_{0x}= v

_{0}cos 45°

v

_{0y}= v

_{0}sin 45°

I apologize for my cluelessness - this my first semester in physics (at all), and I am having trouble finding where to go about this problem. Thank you in advance.
