I failure to find an observation related to motion in two dimension projectile motion.

Prove That/Show that

maximum range =4Height

or

Rmax=4H

please help me thanks Ahsan Khan

Professor Hu did it here. Take his derivation for max range, and height, and show that Rmax=4H

That link did not work

vertical v = Vo - gt

at the top, H, v = 0

so

t = Vo/g

then H = Vo t - .5 g t^2

H = Vo^2/g -.5 Vo^2/g = .5 Vo^2/g

that t is time to the top, H, which is half the total time in the air

u = Uo constant horizontal speed

R = range = Uo *2t = 2 Uo t = 2 UoVo/g

so

H/R = .5Vo/2 Uo = (1/4) Vo/Uo

I suspect that you class has already done the angle for maximum range is 45 degrees above horizontal where Vo = Uo

so

H/R = 1/4

Anyway in case you have not done it, for speed S and elevation angle T:

Uo = s cos T

Vo = s sin T

for max height

t = (s/g) sin T like before

R = 2 Uo t = 2 s cos T (s/g )sin T

for max

dR/dT = 0

(2 s^2/g)(-sin^2 T + cos^2 T)

or max range when T = 45 degrees and

Uo = Vo

i dont know the answer but how 4 the man height varies
