Homework Help: Projectile motion on an inclined plane

  1. Oct 16, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A projectile is fired up an incline (incline angle ϕ) with an initial speed vi at an angle θi with respect to the horizontal.

    2. Relevant equations
    For what value of θi is d a maximum, and what is that maximum value? (Use v_i for vi, phi for ϕ, and g as appropriate. ϕ is in radians.)

    θ>">i =
    dmax =

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Ok so I get so confused with these problems...I did it but the program i have to put it into keep saying syntax error, I dont know if i am wrong or if the program just isnt reading it right...

    Hi steph35,

    If it is responding with syntax error, I would think that you are just not inputting your answer in the form that the program needs it to be in.
