What is the relationship between the angle of projection and the range reached?
I'm trying to formulate a hypothesis about projectile motion.

in case of level range (equal shooting and landing heights)
Range R = V^2/g*sin (2Θ)
such formula shows that the wider range for a certain shooting speed V is obtained when sin (2Θ) is max and equal to 1 , and this happens for Θ = 45°.
If, instead, shooting and landing heights are not the same , then the upper formula isn't applicable any longer : previous solved problems as shown than the optimum shooting angle moves away from 45° as much as higher is the difference between shooting and landing heights
