Hi All,
Question: How to derive these equations of missile launch?

v=∆x√(g/2H)

v=√(2gh/β+1)

I need to use these formulas:
∆y=voyt - (gt²)/2
∆x=vxt
K=(mv²)/2 + (Iω²)/2
∆UG=mg∆y
I=βmr²
β=2/5

Thanks, Carlos.

They seem to be derived for a specific problem statement. How exactly are they used?

The exercise asked to deduce these formulas.

Without any other context or diagram? Then the problem statement is really bad.

When parsed according to standard rules for reading mathematical expressions, the second formula above means
[tex] v = \sqrt{ \frac{2gh}{\beta} + 1}[/tex]
Is that really what you wanted, or did you mean
[tex] v = \sqrt{ \frac{2gh}{\beta + 1}} ?[/tex]
If the latter, you need to use parentheses, like this: v = √ (2gh/(β+1)).

Sorry..
v = √ (2gh/(β+1)) is correct. Thanks

I got this v = √ (2gh/(β+1)).
I need this v=∆x√(g/(2H))

Combining those equations only makes sense if ##\Delta x=h## (they have to apply to the same time t), and if vx is the average velocity during ascent (or descent).
