# A particle starts from the origin of co-ordinates at time t=0 and moves in the xy plane with a constant acceleration k in the y-axis direction.Its equation of motion is y^2=px^2,where p is a constant.Then,its velocity component in the x-direction is:A)variableB)underroot(2k/p)C)k/2pD)underroot(k/2p)ANS:D

Dear Sameer,
we know by eq. of trajectory=>
y=xtan(o) - x^2tan(o)/R
...Where R=range and (o)=angle of projection.....also here g=k
squaring both sides and comparing with the given eq.
We get ucos(o)=root(k/2p)ANS.

Regards.

the velocity component in x direction is variable not constant

from the equation we can get the angle of projection or the tan of angle which will give cos Q

then the x component of velocity will be k/2p^1/2
