 Homework Statement:
 Proof that in a parabolic motion with r0 = 0 and v_y0 = 0, the maximum horizontal range (in the x direction) is given by shooting with an angle of π / 4 inclination about the horizontal direction.
 Relevant Equations:

y(t)= y_0 +V_0y t1/2 gt^2
x(t)= x_0+V_0x t
So the statement says that in r(0)=0, so it departs from the origin. And it also says that v_y0 = 0, thus meaning thar it´´´ s position in the y direction is Constant. Is shooting in a π / 4 angle still plausible? or there´ s no way that can happen? So far I´ ve thought since there´ s no acceleration affecting the movement, its position must be determine by x(t)= x_0+V_0x t which is x(t)= x_0+V_0cos (θ) t.
So what do you think?
