Maximizing Range 2

A projectile is fired from a height hh, as shown in the figure, with an initial velocity vv at an angle of inclination θ\theta from the horizontal. Determine θ\theta in degrees so that the range RR of the projectile, measured on the ground, is maximum.

Details and Assumptions

  • v2=ghv^2=gh.
  • Neglect air resistance.
