Assume a monkey lets go of a tree when a tranquiliser is fired. At what angle should the gun be pointed so that the tranquiliser hits the monkey while in free fall?

Neglect size of gun and monkey. Let Xm,Ym = monkey's initial position, Vo=magnitude of tranquilizer's initial velocity. What is the minimum velocity, Vo(in m/s) so that the tranquilizer hits the monkey in free fall if Xm=Ym=10m?

What curve describes the tranquilizer's trajectory?Prove it
