Projectile on a inclined plane

Classical Mechanics Level 4

A particle is projected from the bottom of a inclined plane at an angle \(\theta\) with the surface of incline. The incline has an inclination of 1 i.e. angle of incline is 45 degrees. For what value of \(\theta\) will the particle retrace its path after collision with the plane.

*Note *

  • the collision is an elastic collision.
  • the answer is of the form \(\theta\) = \(cot^{-1}x\) Find \(x\)
