Is it impossible for me to to set a swing (on which a child weighing 66 pound is sitting) going, so that its velocity from the very beginning is 33 ft/s? Why/Why not?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I find myself quite lost with this question so I have no attempts at any solutions...all i know is that it sounds impossible to me..but i don't know how to prove it:S Maybe one could in some way use momentum p=m*v ...

Would really appreciate some help!:)
