 if the particle is projected with velocity u then at maximum height its velocity becomes 0

 we have ,

                   V2 = U2 - 2gHmax

                  U2 = 2gHmax                or 

                U2 directly  proportional to Hmax     

            (Ui)2 / (Uf)2 = (Hmax)i/(Hmax)f

Ui = u , Uf=? , (Hmax)i = h , (Hmax)f = 2h

after substituting these

        Uf = (sqrt2)u        ans

the height attained by the body is h therefore applying third equation of motion


at height h final velocity is zero


u=square root(2gh) ....1

now height attained by the body is 2h

therefore putting 2h in place of h

the equation comes to be


u'= square root(2*2gh)

but square root 2gh=u

therefore u'=u*square root(2)

it is given that 'h' height is attained by a body and its velocity is u...

writing eqn of motion...


putting values....

v=0,u=u,and a=-g(coz g is in downward direction), s=h



so to get height of 2h u should be sqrroot(2) to satisfy above eqn


answer is sqrroot(2)
