An archer aims at a target a horizontal distance 55 m away and 5.0 m above the ground. The archer launches her arrow from of height of 1.5 m off the ground, and the arrow hits the target. The arrow is completely horizontal after sticking to the target (i.e., the arrow was traveling horizontally just before hitting the target). What was the initial speed of the arrow?
