Projectile PuzzleClassical Mechanics Level 2
The maximum horizontal distance you can throw an object before it hits the ground is given by \(kh\), where \(k\) is a constant and \(h\) is the maximum height the object reaches if thrown directly upwards at the same initial speed.
What is the value of \(k\)?
Details and Assumptions
There is no air resistance.
The object is thrown from ground level in both cases.
