Step 1

The above question is an example of projectile motion.

Step 2

(a)

Let the horizontal component of the initial velocity u be denoted as ux.

Let the vertical component of the initial velocity u be denoted as uy.

From the figure the horizontal component of the velocity ux and the vertical component of the velocity uy are calculated as,

Step 3

Substitute 50 m/s for u in the above two equations and solve for...
