Asked by sohail.saba0311 | 09 Sep, 2021, 08:23: PM Expert Answer As shown in above figure, an object is projected downward from a height  h = 100 m above ground level
with velocity u 40√2 m/s so that angle of projection is 45o with vertical.

Projection velocity is resolved into two components,
(i) horizontal component ux = 40 m/s and (ii) vertical component  uy = 40 m/s

Time of flight t , i.e., time taken for the object to reach ground is determined from the following equation

h = uy t + [ (1/2) g t2 ]  .................... (1)

where g is acceleration due to gravity .

By substituting values in eqn.(1) , we get  the following quadratic equation

100 = 40 t + 4.9 t2   or   4.9 t2 + 40 t -100 = 0

By solving above quadratic equation, we get t = 2 s

Range R , i.e. Horizontal distance from projection point is determined by following equation

R = ux t

where t is time of flight

Hence, we get , R = 40 × 2  = 80 m
