a cricketer throw the ball to have maximum horizontal range of 120m.if he throws the ball vertically with same velocity what is the maximum height it can reach?

  • physics -

    Maximum horizontal range is achieved when thrown at an angle of 45 degrees, and equals Vo^2/g. (Vo is the initial velocity). Maximum height when thrown verticslly is
    Vo^2/(2g), half as much as maximum range.
