Maximizing Range 2

A projectile is fired from a height \(h\), as shown in the figure, with an initial velocity \(v\) at an angle of inclination \(\theta\) from the horizontal. Determine \(\theta\) in degrees so that the range \(R\) of the projectile, measured on the ground, is maximum.

Details and Assumptions

  • \(v^2=gh\).
  • Neglect air resistance.
