4. A projectile is fired at time t = 0.0 s from point 0 at the edge of a cliff, with initial velocity components of Vox = 30 m/s and V oy = 100 m/s The projectile rises, and then falls into the sea at point P. The time of flight of the projectile is 25 s. Assume air resistance is negligible.

What is the magnitude of the velocity at time t = 15.0 s?

According to given question

Vox = 30 m/s 
Voy = 100 m/s 
time of flight = 25 s 

At t = 25s max height is reached 
At t = 15.0 s projectile is moving upwards 

Vy at t=15 s = Voy - gt = 100 - (9.81)(15) = 100 - 147 =- 47 m/s 
Vx at t=15 s = Vox = 30 m/s 

Size of velocity at t = 15 s = √[(-47)² + (30)²] = √430,000 = 56 m/s ANS
