    ok the question is Q31 from review exercise 1
    (i) a particle P is projected with a velocity (14i +21j)ms-1 from O on the horizontal ground and moves freely under gravity. At T seconds after projection, P strikes the ground at the point C. Find...
    a) T
    b) distance OC
    c)the position vector H, the point at which P achieves its greatest height above the ground.

    I don't know where to start :confused:

    Remember that horizontal and vertical motion can considered separately.

    What's the criterion for P striking the ground?

    this question is actually straight forward ... so what u have to do is to seperate the horizontal motion and the vertical motion... as you got the speed in the I's and J's notation u know exactly what the initial vertical velocity... in this case it is 21 m/s
    so for part (i) you know that the displacement is 0 ... this is because the particle comes back to the point where it took off...
    s=ut+1/2at^2
    0=21t+4.9t^2

    t=0 or t=30/7

    i hope u agree with that...
