I have tried for a couple hours now and I just cannot seem to figure out what to do. I am able to to find the the x and y components for acceleration (Xa = 0, Ya = -9.8) and distance (Δx = 54.32, Δy = 8.60) but without any of the other components I am having trouble finding Vo. Any help with pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
