A projectile is launched from the ground at an initial velocity, v, at an angle of θ....?

Determine the value of θ that would give the maximum range of the projectile. Also, determine the maximum range in terms of g and v. It is not specified that this take place on Earth. Use g for acceleration due to gravity rather than substituting in a numeric value.

    First find the velocity in X and Y components...and then equations for X and Y displacement over time in general G and V's. Go from there and respond back if you still need more help, but that should get you rolling

    the vertical factor to velocity is 60 x sin30 =30 m/s at max ht this velocity is going to 0 substituting in v^2 = u^2 - 2gh 0 = 30 x 30 - 2 x 9.8 x H H = 30 x 30 / 2 x 9.8 = 46m
