Show that a projectile reaches three-quarters of its maximum height in half the time needed to reach its maximum height.

To determine

To show: A projectile reaches three-quarters of its maximum height in half the time needed to reach its maximum height.

Explanation

Formula used:

The expression for position vector of the projectile is.

r(t)=(v0cosα)ti+[(v0sinα)t12gt2]j (1)

Here,

v0 is the initial speed,

g is the gravity, which is 32fts2 , and

α is the angle of elevation.

The parametric equations of the trajectory are,

x=(v0cosα)t

y=(v0sinα)t12gt2 (2)

Write the expression for velocity.

v(t)=r(t)

v(t)=ddt[r(t)]

Take differentiation with respect to t on both sides of equation (1).

ddt[r(t)]=ddt{(v0cosα)ti+[(v0sinα)t12gt2]j}=ddt[(v0cosα)ti]+ddt[(v0sinα)t12gt2]j=(v0cosα)i+[(v0sinα)12g(2t)]j=(v0cosα)i+[(v0sinα)gt]j

Substitute v(t) for ddt[r(t)] ,

v(t)=(v0cosα)i+[(v0sinα)gt]j (3)

The shell reaches the maximum height when the vertical component of velocity is zero
