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

A projectile is thrown from the top of the ramp. Find the angle [itex]\theta[/itex] of the throw that gives a max range R down the ramp. [itex]\phi[/itex] is the angle made from the base of the ramp to the x-axis.

2. The attempt at a solution

Tried a number of times but failed to get anything that seemed moderately appropriate, i.e. getting long equations that are obviously too complex to be the answer.

Appreciate the help.

Thanks.
