A stone projected with a velocity $$u$$ at an angle $$\theta$$ with the horizontal reaches maximum height $$H_1$$. When it is projected with velocity $$u$$ at an angle $$\frac{\pi}{2}-\theta$$ with the horizontal, it reaches maximum height $$H_2$$. The relation between the horizontal range of the projectile $$R$$ and $$H_1$$ & $$H_2$$ is:

 1 $$R=4 \sqrt{H_1 H_2}$$ 2 $$R=4\left(H_1-H_2\right)$$ 3 $$R=4\left(H_1+H_2\right)$$ 4 $$R=\frac{H_1{ }^2}{H_2{ }^2}$$
