A projectile thrown with an initial velocity u has the same range R when the maximum height attained by it is either h1 or h2. Then R, h1 and h2 are related as
The range of a projectile is the same for two angles of projection θ and 90∘−θ. For these two angles of projection, the maximum heights are
h1=v20 sin2 θ2gand h2=v20 sin2(90∘−θ)2g=v20 cos2 θ2g∴h1h2=v40 sin2 θ cos2 θ4g2
Also, R=2v20sin θ cos θg⇒R2=4v40 sin2 θ cos2θg2=16×v40 sin2 θ cos2θ4g2
Hence, the correct choice is (d).
