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

Vy - 15m

Vx - 40m

U - 17m/s

V - 0

Time to reach highest point (t) 1.7s

2. Relevant equations

cos 0 = a/c

3. The attempt at a solution

72 degrees.

Not sure if this is the correct method of calculating the angle, especially since a projectile's trajectory is a parabola.
