@zaphod Particle's velocity has two components : 1) Horizontal Velocity= \(v\cos \alpha\) {remains unchanged throughout the length of the motion obviously we are ignoring the air friction } 2) Vertical Velocity=\(v \sin \alpha\) initially { decelerated by gravity} dw:1349870216959:dw Do you understand this part?

yes now how do i get the height into this can u show the working

Only \( v \sin \alpha\) is used for vertical motion. Using \[v^2u^2=2as\] Taking upward direction to be positive We need to find vertical velocity when the particle reaches a height h \[v^2u^2=2as\] s= h a=g \[u=v\sin \alpha \] \[v^2(u\sin \alpha)^2=2\times (g)\times h\] now find v from this This will be the vertical velocity at height h dw:1349870813000:dw

speed will be the resultant of v cos alpha and wt u found out?

Note that this v is different from the v given in the question. Let it be x \[xdw:1349871003737:dw^2(u\sin \alpha)^2=2\times (g)\times h\]

Yeah speed will be \[\sqrt {( v\ \cos \alpha)^2+x^2}\]

\[x^2(u\sin \alpha)^2=2\times (g)\times h\]

Actually the velocity has two components v cos alpha and x Speed will be the magnitude

Algebraic!Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[speed = \sqrt{(V \sin \alpha)^{2}2gh +(V \cos \alpha)^2}\] \[= \sqrt{(V^2 (\sin ^2 \alpha +\cos^2 \alpha)2gh}\] \[= \sqrt{V^2 2gh}\]
