A projectile of mass 0.257 kg is shot from a cannon, at height 6.4 m, as shown in the figure, with an initial velocity vi having a horizontal component of 6.4 m/s. The projectile rises to a maximum height of y above the end of the cannon’s barrel and strikes the ground a horizontal distance x past the end of the cannon’s barrel. Find the magnitude of the velocity vector when the projectile hits the ground. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 . Answer in units of m/s
