A particle is projected with speed \(\sqrt{3} i\cap + j\cap +k\cap\) from the origin. If the highest point of trajectory , the velocity vector makes and angle \(\theta\) with n-axis, then find \(\tan \theta\)

    Three Co-orDinates...hm......if it is Two Cordinate tanx = vy/vx @highest point of trajectory vertical component of velocity is 0

    if this is Two-Cordinate then usinx =0........Since it is a Three Coordinate...) i dont thhink...so...and i have nt studied....Three Coordinate Plane...

    @mathslover what does n axis refer to? this is supposed to be a three dimensional coordinate system

    Well the question dont tells this .... I am also confused , also in starting it is written : Treat vertically upward as K|dw:1349109611966:dw|

    i mean \[\tan \theta = \frac{ 1 }{ \sqrt3 }\]

    You're correct @ghazi but HOW?

    see if you consider a three dimensional system check out the spherical coordinate system on google you'll find theta is the angle between x and y axis now \[\tan \theta= \frac{ y }{ x }=\frac{ 1 }{ \sqrt3 }\] x and y are the intercepts
