(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A cannon fires projectiles on a flat range at fixed speed but with variable angle. The maximum range of the cannon is L. What is the range of the cannon when it fires at an angle [itex]\frac{\pi}{6}[/itex] above the horizontal? Ignore air resistance.

2. Relevant equations

Four kinematic equations.

3. The attempt at a solution

I honestly don't know where to start. What exactly does the question mean by the range of the cannon? Is that the horizontal distance the projectile goes?
