(a) The time of flight of the object in projectile motion is given as:
232-208_1.PNG
232-43_1.PNG
It can be seen from this expression that the time of flight of object is dependent only on the maximum attainable height and the acceleration due to gravity.
If one assume g to be constant and the given condition that H is same for all the three projectiles, one can conclude that the time of flight will for all the three paths will be the same.
(b) The vertical component of launch velocity is given as:
232-663_1.PNG
(c) The horizontal component of the launch velocity is given as:
232-306_1.PNG
