How can I find the max velocity (what equations/assumptions should I use)? Does max velocity depend on angle barrel makes with the ground when it was launched?


Question 2: In early August, the AZ Daily Star reported that there was a fuel depot explosion in
Vienna Township, Michigan. A fuel barrel exploded at the White Oil Co. storage facility. About 15 explosions were heard in the next hour and more as the evening went on. Many 50 gallon
drums filled with bulk oil flew about 50 feet in the air. Based on what you know, what was the maximum velocity (in mfs) of a barrel when it began its
ascent? State all assumptions you make.
