R = horizontal range = u^2 sin 2#/g.

Answer should be U^2sin(2a)/g

As range will be horizontal component of velocity i.e Ux multiply by t(time)____ Ux t= Usin(a)*t
now for finding t let us consider vertical motion of proectile

So, S = ut + 0.5 at^2.
0 = Uy *t - 0.5 * a * t^2 (put Uy as Usin(a)).
Solving this we get t = 2Usin(a)/g.
Hence range R = Ux * t = Ucos(a) * 2 * Usin(a)/g.
Hence R = U^2sin(2a)/g.

All options are wrong.

It will be:
= U^2 SIN2 * ANGLE/G.

No, Given option is correct.

It should be v^2sin2θ/g.

Horizontal range of the projectile, is u2sin (a)/g.
Toataltime of flight 2usin(a)/g.

U^2sin2α ÷ 2g this is the correct answer.

Aswathy said: (Dec 17, 2019)  
Horizontal range= (u^2sin(2$))/g
Maximum ht=(u^2sin^2($))/2g
Time to reach maximum ht=(usin($))/g
Time of flight=(2usin($))/g

Maximum horizontal range occurs at 45 degrees.

= u sqr/g.
