Consider a projectile fired horizontally from a cliff of a given height. With what speed must it be fired so that it makes a 45 degree angle with the ground when it hits
It 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.
Let H=given height of cliff
