Two projectiles are projected from the ground simultaneously with speeds 30 m/s and 20 m/s at angle 60o and 30o with the horizontal in the same direction. Find the maximum distance between them on ground where they strike.
Horizontal range is given by,
This is the required maximum distance between the two projectiles when they strike the ground.
