(a)The ball is making a projectile motion. The range and angle made by the projectile are given,hence from the expression of range it is possible to find the initial speed.

Write the expression for Range of the projectile, and rearrange to obtain an expression for initial speed.

Step 2

Substitute corresponding values in equation (I).

Step 3

(b)Write the expression for maximum height of the pro...
