**MathMate**, Friday, September 24, 2010 at 9:52amIt hits ground with 45° angle when the vertical velocity, vy, is the same as the horizontal velocity, vx, which equals u (initial velocity) if the projectile is fired horizontally and ignoring air-resistance.

vx=u

Let H=given height of cliff

vy²-0²=2gH

vy²=2gH

since vy=u,

u²=2gH

u=√(2gH)
