A particle is projected from the ground at an angle with the horizontal. The velocity of the projectile when it is at the greatest height is ( sqrt{frac{3}{5}} ) times when it is at one third of its greatest height. The angle of projection is ( 2 mathrm{K}^{circ} ). Find the value of ( mathrm{K} ).
