The form it reduced to was 4=tan(th)*x-1/2*g*x^2*(sec(th))^2/vo^2

Here is the problem:

If a projectile is launched at 10m/s from the coordinates (0,0), what angle would it need to be launched at to pass through the points (4,4)?

Is it a transcendental equation, or is there a analytic solution?

Thanks,
