1. A particle is projected at an angle  0 = 60° with horizontal. If after
seconds the angle between
its velocity vector is reduced to half of its initial value, find the speed of projection (g = 10
m/sec2).
2. A particle when fired at an angle  = 600 along the direction of the breadth of a rectangular
building of dimension 9m  8m  4m so as to sweep the edges. Find the range of the projectile.
3. An elevator of height h is ascending with an acceleration a. After a time t a coin is dropped from
the top of an elevator. When will the coin strike the bottom of the elevator?
