Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you want the horizontal velocity?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question i have posted verbatim from my daughter's weekly test. I am not sure but there must be some conditionalities for 20 m/s to be the minimum velocity ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No none. Only 4 options as I noted above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it doesnt even have the word "the" at the start of the sentence? Perhaps she copied the question down wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My mistake it should read "The Minimum.. I have the question paper right in front of me..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and it just gives "find the vel of projection"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It reads " The Minimum.....with the horizontal. The velocity of projection is 1) 20 m/s 2) 10 m/s 3) 30 m/s 4) 40 m/s "

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0RIGHTTT thats much better. so the minimum velocity is 20m/s in the horizontal direction. find the absolute velocity. okay so i think it looks like this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, that gives an answer which is one of your possible answers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Her text book says there is a minimum velocity of projection to reach a specific point .I am not very satisfied taking 20 m/s as the vel in the horizontal direction. It should have been 20 Cos 60 as the horizontal component as it remains constant..is there any other possibility?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wel in this isntance ? = 40 m/s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the specific point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How did you deduce? Pl help as I need to understand & then teach my daughter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I just found the hypotenuse of that triangle \[velocity = hypotenuse = \frac{20 m /s}{\cos (60)} = 40 m/s\]
