Answer:
1) The path of the projectile is shown below
 
 
The horizontal component of velocity always remain same as there is no acceleration on the horizontal axis.
 
Thus, the horizontal distance travelled by the projectile is
 
x = u cos? t
 
t = x/(u cos?)                                                   ...... (1)
 
The vertical distance travelled by projectile is given from kinematical equation s = ut + at2.
Here, s = y, a = ay = -g, u = uy = u sin?
 
Thus, we have
 
y = u sin? - gt2                                              ...... (2)
 
Substituting equation (1) in (2), we get
 
 
This is the equation of trajectory of the projectile.
