**1. Homework Statement**

The maximum range of a bullet fired from a toy pistol mounted on a car at rest is R0=40m .

What will be the acute angle of inclination of the pistol for maximum range when the car is moving in the direction of firing with uniform v=velocity 20m/s, on a horizontal surface ? (g=10m/s).

**2. Homework Equations**

T=2 u sin(theta)/g

r=u u sin2(theta)/g

h= u u sin(theta) sin(theta)/2g

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Maximum range is always at 45 degrees so no calculation needed.( am i right?)

different answers are given everywhere for this same question.
