I have no idea where to begin with this problem. To me it seems like its missing information.
You desperately want to qualify for the Olympics in the long jump, so you decide to hold the qualifying event on the moon of your choice. You need to jump 7.52 m to qualify. The maximum speed at which you can run at any location is 5.90 m/s. What is the magnitude of the maximum rate of freefall acceleration the moon can have for you to achieve your dream? any help?

Here the range and the initial velocity is given. What should the the angle projection for maximum range?

change in x = (v^2 sin(2*theta)) / ay I dont know theta so I dont think I can use this equation right? and isnt 5.90 m/s the velocity of the x component? or is that the initial velocity of the jump?
