salmon often jump waterfalls to reach their breeding grounds. One salmon starts 2m from a waterfall that is .55m tall and jumps at an angle of 32degrees. what must be the salmon's minimum speed to reach the waterfall?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

so the distance in y is .55 and distance in x is 2 and the degree is 32 and trying to find Vi. but i m lost like how would i be able to solve for Vi if i do not have any of the velocity in x or y direction.
