When the particle strikes, the vehicle’s position is x A = L + V 2 nV sin α g + 1 4 g w 2 nV sin α g W 2 Simplifying, we find x A = L + 2 nV 2 sin α g + n 2 V 2 sin 2 α g So, x A = x B when L + 2 nV 2 sin α g + n 2 V 2 sin 2 α g = 2 n 2 V 2 sin α cos α g which can be rearranged to yield V 2 g sin α (2 cos α sin α ) n 2 2 V 2 sin α g n
