In the absence of air resistance, a projectile is launched from and returns to ground level. It follows a trajectory similar to that shown in Figure 3.10 and has a range of 29 m. Suppose the launch speed is doubled, and the projectile is fired at the same angle above the ground. What is the new range?

1. In the vertical:
vf=vi-gt where t is time in air.
because vf=-vi in the vertical
t=2vi/g

Now, horizontal distance
d=vih*t=vih*2vi/g

now if vi is doubled, vi (in the vertical and horizontal) are doubled, so
d= is 2^2 as far, or four times as far. it is in the air twice as long, and its horizontal velocity is doubled.
