Dear sindhuja

critical velocity at the highest point is 'V0'

force balance at highes point 


or  V02 =rg

now for motion from horizontal to highes point

 energy balance             1/2 mv2 =1/2 mV02    +mgr

                                                        v2    =3gr

force balance   T=mv2/r

Given a vector A = 2i + 3j and a vector B = i + j.The component of the vector A along B is(a) 1/(2)½ (i + j) (b) 3/(2)½ (i + j)(c) 5/(2)½ (i + j)(d) 7/(2)½ (i + j)
The component of the vector A along B geometrically is: Bcos(theta) = (A.B/|B|).(Bcap) = 5/(2)½ (i + j) option is correct.
