Hello! any help is appreaciated, thank you!

You throw a rock off a tall building of height h with speed vi and angle θ. How fast is the rock going when it hits the ground? Only use variable (no numbers). What happens to your answer if you change θ? Explain your reasoning

The dependence of angle of projection and final velocity is explained as:

So final velocity of projectile is independent of the angle of projection.

Please, feel free to ask in case of any doubts and discrepancies.
Thank you.

Suppose you want to throw a dart across a room at a wall-mounted target and hit the target exactly at its center point. We call this center point of the target its “bull’s-eye”. The bull’s-eye is a horizontal distance d from the dart’s point of release and a height habove the dart’s point of release. To hit the bull’s-eye, you have a choice of the speed v at which you throw the dart and a choice of the angle θ...
