Salmon swimming up a river to their spawning grounds, leap over all sorts of obtacles. The unofficial salmon-altitude record is a 3.56m jump. Assuming that the salmon took off at a 45 degree angle, what was the speed at which it was emerging from the water?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Xo = 0m

Yo = 0m

Y = 3.56m

a = 9.8m/s^2

X = ???

v = ???

and I thought of using this formula : Y = Yo + VYo(t) + (0.5)(a)(t)^2

but I couldn't because I dont have t.
