## Question

The maximum height attained by a projectile is increased by 10% by changing the angle of projection, without changing the speed of projection. The percentage increase in the time of flight will be

### Solution

5%

Given differentiating partially we get

(âˆµ *v*_{0} = constant)

Hence *T* increases by 5%.
