When a projectile leaves a starting point at an angle of elevation of theta with a velocity v, the horizontal distance it travels is determined by:

d=v^2/(32) sin2theta

Where d is measured in feet and v in feet per second.

An outfielder throws the ball at a speed of 75 miles per hour to the catcher who is 200 feet away. At what angle of elevation was the ball thrown?
