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

On level ground, what is the maximum range (in m) of a cannon with muzzle speed 322 m/s?

Please take a look at this:

2. Relevant equations

R = (V0^2 * sin2angles)/g

3. The attempt at a solution

I think (not sure) the angles in the pic is 30 degree. And came up with the answer:

R= 9162.55 m, and it is wrong. Please help with direction as well as formula and the final answer.

Thanks so much!
