A projectile is fired from the surface of the earth with a velocity of $$5$$ ms–1 and at an angle $$\theta$$ with the horizontal. Another projectile fired from another planet with a velocity of $$3$$ ms–1 at the same angle follows a trajectory that is identical to the trajectory of the projectile fired from the Earth. The value of the acceleration due to gravity on the other planet is: (given $$g=9.8$$ ms–2)
1. $$3.5$$ m/s2
2. $$5.9$$ m/s2
3. $$16.3$$ m/s2
4. $$110.8$$ m/s2
