Figure shows four paths for a kicked football. Ignoring the effects of air on the flight, rank the paths according to initial horizontal velocity component, highest first

(1) 1, 2, 3, 4

(2) 2, 3, 4, 1

(3) 3, 4, 1, 2

(4) 4, 3, 2, 1

Projectile motion

(4) $R=\frac{{u}^{2}\mathrm{sin}2\theta }{g}=\frac{2{u}_{x}{v}_{y}}{g}$

∴ Range ∝ horizontal initial velocity (ux

In path 4 range is maximum so football possess maximum horizontal velocity in this path.
