1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

what is the relationship between the launch angle and the displacement of a projectile,

is it possible to say that the launch angle is proportional to displacement, can it be done mthematically by using physics equations?

for example we can say that with the equation F=ma

the force is proportional to the acceleration as, when the force increases so does the acceleration and vice versa. and mass is inversley proportional

2. Relevant equations

d = v^2(sin2A)/g

where d, is displacement of the projectile in the horizontal, v is the initial or final velocity? A, is the launch angle of the projectile and g, the accleration de to gravity.

3. The attempt at a solution

i understand the equation and and am able to derive it from the relevent motion equations
