H=1/8g m

#### Explanation:

Let us consider only the vertical motion of the projectile .Let it's velocity be v then it's velocity along the vertical direction is vsin

where

The only acceleration along the vertical direction is the acceleration due to gravity g.

At the peak point the velocity of the projectile becomes zero . therefore the final velocity of the projectile is zero .

Let us use the kinematic equation

where u is the initial velocity v is the final velocity and H is the maximum height reached by the projectile .
