(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A projectile is launched with a speed of 45 m/s at an angle of 56° above the horizontal. Use conservation of energy to find the maximum height reached by the projectile during its flight.

2. Relevant equations

PE=KE

mgh=1/2mv^2

gh=1/2v^2

h=.5v^2/g

3. The attempt at a solution

I thought in this equation that the angle wouldn't matter, but I know I'm wrong. I thought you could just plug it the numbers to the manipulated formula h=.5v^2/g. Please help! thanks
