A child on a swing has a speed of 1.3 m/s at the low point of the arc. How high (in m) will the swing be at the high point?

I would use a 6 iron.

I feel like this is a trick question. Like the m/s doesn't change.. But I'm not good at math so don't quote me on it.


This is allllll I got. 1.3. That is it. I literally copied and pasted. I am also stuck because it feels like I don’t have enough info.


there are so many factors and it depends on his swing. You need the following variables when calculating trajectory. Ball speed (mph), launch angle (degree), spin (rpm) and AOA - angle of attack (degree). from there you can calculate the distance, the apex (the height of the trajectory) and the direction.
