Suppose a chinook salmon needs to jump a waterfall

Suppose a Chinook salmon needs to jump a waterfall that is 1.50m high. If the fish starts from a distance of 1.00 m from the base of the ledge over which the waterfall flows, find the x- and y- components of the initial velocity The salmon would need to just reach the ledge at the top of its trajectory. Can the fish make the jump? (Remember that a Chinook salmon can jump out of the water with a speed of 6.26m/s^2.)
