(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Kinematics Problem (Solved)

I greatly apologize for making this my very first post. I am in great need of assistance though, and I hope someone can help me comprehend how to solve this.

It seems relatively simple, but it does not seem to be clicking in my mind at the moment.

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A trout jumps a waterfall 2.5 m high. With what minimum speed did it leave the water below to reach the top?

2. Relevant equations

Issue at hand.

3. The attempt at a solution

I understand that Vf(final) = 0 m/s, x = 2.5 m, and Vo is what I am solving for.

I have a card of equations but I'm unsure as to which would apply to this. And I don't believe gravity plays a part in this, does it?

Thank you so much for your assistance.
