Homework Help: Projectile Motion Maybe Parametric equations?

  1. Oct 17, 2007 #1
    Hey I have a problem with question 4 of this problem set

    http://www.physics.ubc.ca/~mattison/Courses/Phys170/p170-ps5.pdf [Broken] Number 4.

    I have found Vmin to be 0.84m/s which i know it is correct, but i cannot solve Vmax?

    i thoguht you could maybe approach this question with 2 parametric equations? can anyone show me some hints toward this question?

    Greatly appreciated.

    You find Vmax EXACTLY the same way you find Vmin. Break the motion into xy components and use kinematics. How did you find Vmin?
