Question

A golfer hits a shot to a green that is elevated 3.30 m above the point where the ball is struck. The ball leaves the club at a speed of 17.0 m/s at an angle of 46.0˚ above the horizontal. It rises to its maximum height and then falls down to the green. Ignoring air resistance, find the speed of the ball just before it lands.
