Question 3
Find the co-ordinates of the stone where its hit the X-axis

Question 4
Find the velocity vector of the stone when it hits X-axis.

Question 5
Find the co-ordinates of the point A on the plank when the stone hit the X-axis

Question 6
Find the maximum value of velocity v so as to land the stone on the plank
