Homework Help: trig

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 8:35pm.

An object Is propelled upward at an angle θ, 45 < θ<90, to the horizontal with an initial velocity of (Vo) feet per second from the base of a plane that makes an angle of 45 with the horizontal. If air resistance is ignored, the distance R it travels up the inclined plane is given by

R = Vo^2√2
------------------ cos θ (sin θ cos θ)

Show that

R = Vo^2√2
------------------ (sin 2θ cos 2θ - 1)

Graph R= R(θ).
What value of θ makes R the largest? (assume Vo= 32 ft/sec.)
