The new initial velocity should be 'root 2 times u'. Tell me if there's something wrong with it or you don't understand a part of it: https://imgur.com/PuPIDE5
A projectile fired at a speed of u and an angle of x to the horizontal, reaches a
maximum height of H. When the same projectile is fired again at the same
angle with a new higher initial speed it reaches a new maximum height of 2H.
What is the new initial velocity in terms of u.

That's for the new uy. But for the new initial velocity, which is root of uy2 + ux2, I got u times root (sin squared x plus 1).
Not sure if it's correct, so a confirmation would be appreciated.
Oh,got it now. I thought horizontal velocity was the same, until I realised the question didn't mention that. Thanks for the help.
