Solution

## The correct option is C mv3sin2θcosθ2gAt the highest point, it has horizontal velocity only i.e. vx=vcosθ. Length of the perpendicular to the horizontal velocity from ′O′ is the maximum height, where Hmax=v2sin2θ2g We know, L=mr⊥v =m×Hmax×vcosθ =m×(v2sin2θ2g)×vcosθ =mv3sin2θcosθ2g ∴ Option (c) is correct.
