A particle is projected vertically upwards from a point A on the ground. It takes time t1, to reach a point B, but it still continues to move up. It takes further time t2 to reach the ground from point B then height of point B from the ground is:

Given

Total time of particle = (t1 + t2)

To find initial value

Applying 2nd equation of motion

\(\begin{array}{l}0 = u(t_{1}+t_{2})-\frac{g}{2}(t_{1}+t_{2})^{2}\end{array} \)

We get,

\(\begin{array}{l}\frac{g}{2}(t_{1}+t_{2})= u\end{array} \)

Since height at t = t1+ t2 = 0

At t = t1,height attained is l

Hence,

\(\begin{array}{l}h = ut_{1}-\frac{g}{2}t_{1}^{2}\\h = \frac{g}{2}(t_{1}+t_{2})t_{1}-\frac{g}{2}t_{1}^{2}\\h = \frac{g}{2}t_{1}[t_{1}+t_{2}-t_{1}]\end{array} \)

We get,

\(\begin{array}{l}h = \frac{g}{2}t_{1}t_{2}\end{array} \)
