the horizontal range of a projectile is 4a. It passes a tower that height a/2 when the horizontal range was a. What is the projectile velocity and projectile angle.

  • Applied Math -

    "Range" is how far the projectile travels when it hits the ground

    The horizontal range cannot be both 4a and a. Do you mean the height was a/2 when it had travelled a distance a?

    Yes
